I am looking at purchasing a 5g mifi mobile Hotspot and was checking the options for my area. I have heard several people complain about frontier and it being u reliable. It seems MidCo is the fastest speed avaliable and that they are beginning to use fiber optics for faster internet speeds. I am leery about the pricing through Verizon as my experience with them has been negative as far as servicing goes even though the customer representative was very kind. I would love to be rid of Verizon for good.

MIDCO had better pricing, speed, service, and equipment than Frontier. MIDCO is upgrading to fiber optic for internet service. Frontier Communications just doesn’t seem to care.
