In February I switched my phone plan to Patriot Mobile because I liked what they stood for. I also no longer wanted to support a company like Google with their Google Fi network. I was kind of nervous about the coverage at first. But believe it or not, the Patriot Mobile network works better for me than Google Fi.
When I used Google Fi my phone would lose service inside my house and in random places around my town. That made my wife upset when she was trying to call me. I had to manually set or reset the network settings in order for it to connect on a number of occasions.
When I got the SIM card for Patriot Mobile I put it into my Pixel 3a and it worked perfectly. This is the very same phone that had issues with the Google FI network. So needless to say I am impressed.
I’ve also traveled a few times with it now and I have not had any issues getting service. I think they use the sprint/t-mobile network. But it’s funny because Google Fi said they used the same network and the coverage was much worse.
The bill is a few dollars higher but I can use 3x as much data for the same price. I also don’t mind it being a few dollars higher because I know they support and donate to christian and conservative causes.
Right now my bill is around $37 a month for the 3 GB data plan.
The customer service is also super nice and helpful but getting help over the phone may not always be convenient if your phone is having issues. I guess that’s the cost of not having a physical store you can go to. So that’s something to keep in mine.
When I switched my phone number over to their service I ran into an issue where my phone went out for a little bit. I called them on my wife’s phone and they worked out the problem very quickly.
When that happen I thought I had made a mistake switching. But since then I’ve had nothing but great service so I think it was a fluke.
Try Patriot Mobile
If you’re still reading then I’d say try it! Stop sending money to Big Tech and let your money go to good causes. Worse case you can always switch back. There’s no contract forcing you to stay with them.
