I'm on my third year with Calyx

I live in Pittsylvania County with similar options. The Calyx works better that our local cable internet and DSL. I just ran a speed test and Download was 21.93 and Upload was 5.34. Of course it is dependent on your signal strength from the Sprint Network. We've had no problems with zoom calls or standard streaming. Only 10 devices may be on the network at one time, so this can be an issue if you have a large family. You will also be assigned a network location in the Washington DC area. This is a little annoying when searching your local stores. You have to change the zipcode to get your own Lowes, Sam's etc. If I am watching YoutubeTV on my laptop, I get the local networks from DC/Maryland. However when watching through any of my Rokus, I get out local affiliates.
