I had them 15+ years ago and did not have a favorable impression, but that's a long time for things to change.  Their plans are attractive and include more "mobile hotspot" than anyone else.  I work remotely and I'm starting to think about commuting to Olallie State Park some days, I can work from a park bench next to the river, through the hotspot.

I would love to hear feedback from anybody using their service.  Are you happy with it?

I don't use them, so this is anecdotal, but my brother in Oregon bailed on them recently (within maybe two or three years back), and had the same impression you did 15 years ago. And that's all I know, or "have heard" first hand. Let's see what other folks who actually know have to say.

A friend of mineís girlfriend has Sprint and I am told she complains frequently of extremely poor coverage in rural areas. I have met a few people with T Mobile and they have commented that they have poor coverage in rural areas.

I know itís a little more expensive, but you canít go wrong with Verizon and very good rural coverage. I usually get 3 bars at my house thatís far away from any urban areas.

Sprint will give me 100 GB of mobile hotspot as part of a $90 a month plan.  I live in the one building in all of Seattle that Comcast doesn't serve, so my cheapest home internet option is $45/mo and would be completely unnecessary including for work with that plan.  Plus they throw in Prime and Hulu.  I live on the edge of downtown Seattle, should have good reception here.

Other than work, I don't use the internet much, I do photos and really value having access to maps, wta, and here.  I get fast internet in Winthrop with T-Mobile, nothing in Mazama.  I like being able to get back from a hike or whatever else, and figure out what trail I'll be on tomorrow from the restaurant.  I feel like I'll probably have to give that up if I change.

I had Sprint for 10 years before switching to Verizon a little over 2 years ago. Coverage was fine in the greater Seattle area and most major towns along highways but lacking everywhere else. About four years ago I had coverage in Winthrop but the following year it was gone for some reason. Verizon has been much better, especially in smaller towns and in the mountains. I often have just enough signal to send a text from the top of a mountain somewhere should I need to.

If you want help getting that same plan for $50, or the lower plan that gives you 50 GB tethering for $30 (with Hulu and Tidal), message me.

You can swap between the plans online yourself anytime.

Sprint has unlimited included roaming on T-Mobile and US Cellular for LTE data now.
I use 1x CDMA voice roaming on VZW and USCellular all the time in the rural areas (included).
