My brother in-law is with boom on their Red (Verizon) plan and has horrible latency issues and also experienced all the voice mail issues over the last several months. Come to find out, they aren't really a direct connect to Verizon but go through Ready Wireless.

I'm on Verizon direct and sitting in the same room on the same iphone model here in downtown Dallas, have enormously different response times and coverage bars.

He loves their customer service team and is hesitant to leave to another Verizon MVNO only to experience the same issues.

I on the other hand, think this is totally deceptive on their part. So is this common in the MVNO world? What MVNO's have a direct connect to Verizon?

In the same room and different signal strengths would indicate you and he aren't connected to the same tower or are connected to the same tower but are on differing bands.

Ready Wireless is just a turn-key vendor solution for MVNOs. Your network issues have nothing to do with them. All Verizon MVNOs are depriortized on the network. Your best option is Verizon Prepaid.

Verizon Prepaid would definitely be best, I would agree.

However, there may still be differences among MVNO's, because different MVNO's (or enablers on their behalf) may have elected different service levels with Verizon with differing routing and priorities in the wholesale packages they negotiated.

We had reports that some, but not others, are using third-party-network routing arrangements to lower the cost. Or they use different arrangements with different reverse proxies etc.

One obvious one to try would be Red Pocket, I think, in view of its affordable cost. Original poster, why not get a sim and try it out?

By the way, you should also swap sims between the two phones and test again to rule out handset issues, even now.
