So I've given Visible a couple of chances already, maybe 3, but it seems that after a while I seem to forget how incredibly slow their data speeds are and go another time. With speeds frequently going below 1 Mbps I am starting to wonder who are Visible's happy and loyal customers? Maybe Grandpas who use a flip phone and don't need any data?
It is fascinated that we as consumers see an incredible price and still think that the service can meet "all" our needs. All day everyday most of us have to compromise, why should a cell phone plan be any different? It's like buying McDonald's and expecting Ruth Chris quality...?..... 😄
For most Visible customers I think they understand and are satisfied with the overall experience at the LOW price.
Good Luck too you!
That's interesting, I have read a TON of reviews and most seem to say that while Visible uses the Verizon network your data speeds will be slower but... talk/text are identical. From my experience with Visible if you live/work in a congested area you will definitely get MUCH slower speeds then a Full $ Verizon customer.
Does that help?
Hi @techdude0101, I have good reception at home, but bad reception at my office. So internet speeds are awesome and meh at office. But I have wifi at both locations. And on drive for using maps, streaming music. It has worked okay so far. (Technically it should 🙂)
I suggest you to do speed tests at different times of day, different locations where ever you usually go (Home, office, grocery, gym, etc.). You get the idea correct. And decide for yourself if paying $25 for the plan is worth it or not.
Ok it's a different scenario other than grandpas but same concept. Good data speeds with Visible is a luxury that could happen sporadically, but you can't depend on it happening, and so you have to be someone who doesn't rely on data or need it urgently. Yes Wifi works most of the time but there are situations where cellular data us needed urgently like your car broke and you need to use the AAA app, or Uber, or trying to retrieve your boarding pass or a ticket at a busy game. I am not willing to put my wife in a stressful or risky situation like these.
