I just went there for my last oil change, quick service, Id have to check what I paid, but iirc it was average (around $50 for full synthetic). It's every 5th is free instead of every 8th.. even if it's a couple more dollars over the long run it comes out cheaper

All other places are around $65

I have Verizon prepaid and service is just terrible...in many places around town I simply can't get a data connection. In other places, it's very slow. I urge whoever is having a similar experience to file a complaint with the FCC.

I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

I hope so but their explanation doesn't seem to really add up as the horrendous service is even on 4G phones.

Do you understand how 4G works? The various bands that Verizon uses for 4G LTE? MIMO? Upstream carriers, downstream carriers? Carrier aggregation?

I dont. So are you saying that it actually might get better next month?

Raintree area verizon is the best btw. I just switched to verizon prepaid and it's very fast.
I'm not who you think I am.

I like to keep it simple.
Verizon service is garbage.
Highly doubt they fix anything soon. Theyíre also waiting at least another year to fix the area near gourmet glatt, probably the most popular dead spot in town.
