Spectrum Mobile 1g $14/month Plan....?

Anyone subscribe to this plan?  I use next to nothing in gigs per month and the Spectrum plan sounds good, BUT:  It is, after all, Spectrum whom I don't trust as I have two cable, internet, and landline telephone accounts with them.  I'm also leery of the coverage with such an inexpensive plan.

 

How say you?

I pay 0 since I do not do cell phone, but my wife and two of three kids phone is in my name bc I am a vet and fios gives some discount. Wife doesn't  shop it and keeps re upping. with each new phone.

i have this and it is fantastic!

 

more often than not, i am on a Spectrum wireless network so my actual usage is very little. it is nice that i pay a fraction of what i used to.

 

they do have two different versions. a 1 gig plan which costs $14 and their unlimited which i think is $45 a month. the only caveat though is that you have to be a Spectrum internet customer.

I have heard that. 2 questions. Does that include hotel wifi? Layman's terms, can you explain the actual danger? I hear this often but seldom any reason.

The danger with that is carriers such as Spectrum, att, Verizon, etc have public WiFi hotspots all over that you may connect to without even knowing

 

Best to configure your device to not automatically connect to such networks.  Instead configure your device to connect to your specific private wifi

Some not so light reading

And you specifically mentioned hotel WiFi.  The FBI recently published a public service announcement about the dangers of hotel WiFi
