Help for all - $20 a month Get 4G almost anywhere in your RV
Hi Team,
We have the windgard connect 2.0 and was not happy with the TOGO AT&T expensive setup!! I got 4G from Verizon to work!! I went to verizon a got a $20 sim card added to my existing account and have 4G!! I have 1 bar on my cell phone but with the Winegard and 4G I am at 100% !!!. This is an amazing breakthrough for families and business owners.

See all my info attached

We have the same system on our Vegas 24.1 and so far its only a TV antenna. I considered AT&T to expensive too. I know AT&T and Verizon work but we have T-Mobile and use our phones as hot spots. Cost us $60/month for both phones and we do a lot of streaming when we're out. I wonder which other carrier's are comparable with the 2.0?

I suspect all carriers to be compatible with the Winegard if you get the carrier's SIM card and install it. For our Verizon plan it will cost $10/mo to add another device.

Any sim card works and your hotspot is limited to 15 gb

There are several added benefits.......

First, the Winegard unit is on the roof and has a much better cellular antenna than any cell phone. When you cell phone is showing only 1 bar of signal, the Winegard unit could actually have 3 or 4 bars of signal. This greatly improves connectivity and throughput. I have actually had 0 bars on my phone but the Winegard was able to get some signal.

Next, the Winegard unit has a much better WiFi antenna than your cell phone. It will give you much better signal and throughput inside and outside your coach. As you move further from your cell phone, WiFi performance starts to degrade.

Also the more devices connected to your phone, the performance will drop more than it will with multiple devices connected to the Winegard unit.

We do the same via our AT&T plan - $20 per month for the SIM card to share on our cell phone data plan.
