I use DirecTV now for tv. There is a tv on inside the RV almost all the time unless we're out sightseeing or shopping. I would like to go to one of the web-based tv services but I don't think we can stay within the constraints of use limitations. If or when there is a truly unlimited use option I will sign on and use it on the road and at home, Every unlimited data plan I read about will slow you down at some point, so that I can't use it for tv, especially when two or more TVs are on at once in the home.

My OTR Mobile, unlimited does have a limit, but even working from home, some streaming, plus the other uses, never come close to the cap. IRC, the cap is 300 G.

An advantage to a stand-alone unit is you can go with a different carrier to expand your coverage options.

This is what we do. AT&T for the hotspot and Verizon prepaid for the phones. We almost always have coverage.

I stream TV 16-hours a day with Calyx... It's about $400 a year ($33/month average) and on Sprint/T-Mobile towers.

Visible on Verizon towers.... $25 a month unlimited. Works well on some towers and then can be slow on others.
