I drove into town today to get some groceries and hopefully get on the Internet so I could post to my blog. The grocery thing went as planned but the Internet was a big disappointment.
When I first got to the Ajo Regional Park the Internet was weak and sporadic but I was still able to post to my blog it was just very time-consuming. Then a couple of days ago the Internet when away, I didn't know it had gone away I just thought it was being obstinate so I spent a lot of time trying to get hooked up to no avail.
I blamed it on my location and decided this time I would take my phone and my laptop to town with me and post on my blog after I bought some groceries. But I had no Internet data in town either, zero, nothing, nada. This made me start wondering if all this could possibly have something to do with my brand-new Verizon's alleged "unlimited data plan".
It seems to me there's only two things that it could possibly be, one is that Ajo has little or no Verizon data, like I said previously my Verizon phone service is full bars but my data in town is zilch. Or my unlimited data plan has cut me off.
At the moment I've used 47 gigs of unlimited data and 5.4 gigs of phone hotspot data and the rules are they can throttle me after I've used 22 gigs of unlimited data. But this is not throttling, I have no data. So it's hard to believe this is what Verizon does to their customers after they go over 22 gigs of unlimited data.
Since its about 50 miles to the next town which would be Gila Bend Arizona, and I don't want to drive that far just to see if I can get on the Internet, it looks like what I'm going to do is just not worry about it until the 10th of March, which will be Saturday, when I get a fresh load of data and see if that fixes the problem. Then if I still can't get on the Internet it has to be Ajo's fault.
