Now that I’ve had Uverse disconnected, I’ve been faced with decisions. I won’t mention the ones I’ve discarded. At this point, it’s pointless.
I decided on the T-mobil approach. I picked up the little box and a few hours later, I had a network. With the knowledge I have now, it would take 20 minutes.
I now have a phone, 3 Kendles, desktop computer and Android pad running off of it. The most difficult part to adding devices is entering passwords by pseudo-button keyboards. I have big fingers that make it a little more challenging.
Response on all the devices is good though I currently use but one device at a time.
Now, instead of 226 for cable and internet, it’s 55 for internet. I have not yet tried to hook up my smart TV nor do I know if it’s possible. If not, I’m still a long way ahead.
I do have one hint for anyone else going this route. On the gateway is a label with many useful words. It would be a good idea to jot down the default info. You will need it later and it might not be as easy to read.
I placed my gateway on the front window sill and I am receiving a strong signal from T-mobile. I suppose if I put it higher, but it is somewhat academic. I might or might not get 5 bars instead of the steady 4.
As for my desktop, I get 5 bars instead of the 3 I had from the Uverse gateway. This is in spite of the now greater distance.
So far, every comparison comes out in favor of T-mobil. I wish I made the decision much sooner. Not only would have saved a bundle of money, but the performance would have been better too.
