Dear 4GCommunity.org Members,

We are saddened to inform you that due to circumstances beyond the organization's control the Internet connectivity benefit of membership will be ceasing no later than November 30, 2017. It may be sooner, so please begin looking for other Internet connectivity options right away.

The member online support center will remain a resource through this time next year. Member and support team volunteers will be providing their general assistance through the online support center to assist with questions about basic home computing, networking, and related technologies. It can be accessed through the Support Center page of the website, or directly at: https://4gcommunityorg.happyfox.com/

Respectfully yours,

Support Team

Wait, so an operation that abused Mobile Beacon's contract to provide community service LTE to charities, educational groups, and the poor... is being shut down?

Shocked, simply shocked. Saying something before today, would have only gotten cyberstalkers trolling you endlessly on Reddit. That's the sad state of the internet today.

What shitshow? It is a service that you pay for monthly to obtain a certain benefit. Once it becomes unprofitable or the marketing research they were paid to complete is finished, they do not owe anything to anyone. They can cancel all plans for the following month, notify that prices will increases as of a certain date, or decide to close up shop all together.

People need to get over what they think companies owe them. Except Google... Google Voice better never go anywhere. nodnodnod

Woah there, we're on the same side of this subject. that group, the ones that "need to get over what they think companies owe them". They will be the source of the shitshow.
I suspect there will be a lot of overlap between the ringplus, 4GC, and Moviepass complainers.

I'm not one of them, I've gotten enough value out of all of those deals to make me happy. I just like watching the show.

Perhaps this should have been in the actual forum for this service?
