Well, I gave it a shot for a little less than a month and sadly I have to leave RW. Very disappointed about this because RW, I think has a competitive model and has mastered some tricky things that even Google’s Project Fi hasn’t gotten their arms around. But at the end of the day, dropped calls are dropped calls, and I cannot be dropping work-related calls while commuting.
I’m in a built-up area of the Savannah River Valley; not what I would call particularly rural, and I have just found T-Mobile and Sprint to be much too flaky/spotty. Weird things like driving down a primary road, full LTE, then suddenly nothing, a call drops, and then 5 seconds later, full LTE again, and then when the phone figures out what’s going on, it settles down to 2G. This never happened on Verizon - not once.
Would have loved to have stuck around and seen what RW had cooking, i.e., web-based SMS/MMS, etc - but sadly Verizon is the only network whose coverage map is truly accurate (The TMO map shows this entire area as covered, but this is nowhere near reality).
I was a Project Fi customer for a while and swapped back and forth between Sprint/T-Mo/US Cellular and the bottom line is that they’re all entirely unreliable in this region unless you live in a very built-up pocket and never travel anywhere.
None of this should reflect on RW, what RW promises it does very well (WiFi-preferred calling) and if RW ever expands out to be a Verizon MVNO, I would come back in a heartbeat.
