When Visible first launched, I had considered them as an alternative to home internet. At that time, their CS told me that their hotspot only supported one device at a time. Does anyone know if that has changed?
This is basically Framily. I hated saying that phrase, and I worked for Sprint at the time so I said it ALL THE TIME.
The problem with tying your discount to strangers on the internet is if they stop paying, your bill goes up.
I know that new people can come in to replace, and the relatively small number for max discount makes that easier, but I haven't seen anything that says that new Party members can be existing lines. They almost assuredly have to be new lines of service or ports. That's a big ask to place that much trust in people you don't know.
Don't know how I missed that part. Thanks for the heads up.
$15 a month off your normal service is nothing to scoff at for basically no effort. I think this makes their referral program one of the more expensive in the industry for them ($180/year/customer). But they clearly must see some benefit to it.

That's the way it looked to me, too. I imagine that even if it's new signups only, there will be informal meeting points for those looking to join a party. It seems likely that every cellphone-aholic considering Visible would want to join with a party-- but that group (including Nth Circlers) may be the most fickle about staying with one provider long-term.. I don't think there will be too much risk to long-term average cost, but maybe not the best choice for those on a tight budget.
I would think if nowhere else, it would be within the realm of the Referral Links thread.
It would be nice if anyone listing avalable parties would remember to edit or delete the post when the party is filled.
Beyond that, it might be wise to send a PM to hungryghost to ask.
