Satellite internet (Wild Blue/Dish or Hughes Net) does not allow you to move the dish. They have to be professionally installed at a permanent location. I do not know if they are location locked, but our installer said there was no way for it to be mobile (we had it at our old house about 5 years ago). My in-laws just had it installed last summer and they were told the same thing.

Verizon is great in most parts of the country, but it is pretty dismal is the southwest (New Mexico, West Texas, Utah, and rural CO). Most folks out there would say ATT and the best.

Straight Talk ???

No one has commented about straight talk. I understand it uses Verizon towers therefore coverage should be about the same. They supposedly throttle down to 3G after 3 GB (not a huge problem with me). Has anyone had experience with them? Thinking of dumping Verizon in April for Straight Talk...much cheaper ($43 a month for unlimited) and no contract.
Any info appreciated!

Ah, ok. Well that settles it. It's a shame really. If you can bring your TV dish you should be able to bring your Internet dish. Oh well.

All cell phone companies have their "Prime Market" cities That's why service is sometimes Great or Sucks, depending on market. Also cell phone antenna's differ from phone to phone. Some better than others.
Example: my wife and I have same device. I will 4g service and she will get 3g or 1x . phones sitting on table , side by side. We have been told that the "chip" in phone has to also do with signal strength. BS I think.
We have Verizon. Really like it coverage. Also have the "jet Pack" Bought the external antenna with pig tail adapter and get 4g just about every place we've been.
keeps us connected when cell phone "hot spot " don't
