    As a Cspire customer, I'm getting reaaaaaaaaaaalllly tired of their lack of service to their customers.

    Jellybean rolling out dead last among American companies is bad enough, but it doesn't even begin to touch their generally horrible coverage and complete disregard for customer care.

    It's taken me 3 months to even get lip service from them concerning my now year-long service issues.

    And they have the nerve to roll out a ton of "new and improved" plans, call them "unlimited" and then do the exact opposite of have unlimited data.
