    RAIN 5G signal, service and attitude is terrible. Who has had luck with a quick cancellation?

    All was good until a month ago. Since then my access has been shocking. What is worse, is that I have logged at least 10 support tickets over the last 2 weeks. The only response I got was a single generic copy and paste asking me to reboot my router and move it around. No regard was given to my...

    I've tried reaching out to rain for a while now and have since gotten no feedback other than the one from zendesk, the 5g service is just way too inconsistent, at times it's decent considering how the distance to the tower I'm connected to on certain days and times, on the other days it's just...
