We're looking to cut the cable and bundlers, is there a good hot spot for home use?

What do we need to look for? We want to Skype for phone and use a service for TV.

Would it be better to use a local internet supplier instead. We do travel and have concerns with public wi-fi.

Please help some old technology-challenged folks out!!!!

1. See if Freedom Pop

Is available where you live. If Sprint is available, I think you can get Freedom Pop. Free internet!

3. Just checked it out - seems almost too good to be true! I think we're going to do it. Thank-you!

4. It' s okay.

It is replacing Clear which IMO was much better when you could get it.
The device you get is a refurbished unit. I am using it as back up at work until Google Fiber gets up. Miss my Clear, but oh well...

6. Freedom Pop is a hot spot.

It seems to work just fine with my dlink modems. I am not particularly tech savvy but happy enough with what I have. Eventually, my business will switch over to Google Fiber and I may go to VoIP for my phone. Have U verse at home because I was tired of arguing with my spouse and he has a home office so I gave in.
I am not a fan of AT&T.

7. Mostly over my head, but I don't like AT&T either. Thankyou so much for your expertise.
