Verizon News Update: Disappointing news about our newest benefit

06/21/2017 5:00pm EST

Hello Members,

We thought today was going to be a day of celebration. As you’ll read in the July of Family Motor Coaching magazine, our expectation was that we would be opening the doors to the latest and greatest member benefit – unlimited, on-the-go internet access at a great price for all FMCA members.

Unfortunately, despite months of negotiations, approvals and green lights, the provider (Verizon) pulled the plug at the last second. Magazines had been printed, pre-announcements tested, and the staff was standing by for the flood of enrollments.

For more background on how this situation unfolded, see the post here.

We are very sad. And disappointed. We were so excited to bring you this program because we know how important staying in touch – with reliable access – is while you’re on the road.

Please don’t give up on us. After the unexpected cancellation by Verizon, we’re dusting ourselves off and getting back in the ring. We promise to keep working to bring you benefits of value and quality – the kind of service you expect from your RV family.

Thanks for understanding. And keep having fun – because that’s what FMCA is all about!

Dear Members,

Welcome to the FMCA family!

Ordinarily I wouldn’t write to a new member before we’ve even processed your enrollment, but this has been an unusual week around FMCA.

Last week we launched what we believed was going to be an awesome new benefit exclusively for FMCA members.  After all, our members are on-the-go motorhome owners and want to stay in touch while they travel! We’ve even heard that some people signed up for membership just to gain access to the Verizon unlimited on-the-go internet service.

But then, despite months of negotiations and approvals, Verizon unexpectedly pulled the plug.

If the Verizon benefit was your only reason for joining and you want to cancel your membership, just email membership@fmca.com and we’ll take care of it.  

But before you go ...

... Consider staying on as a member.  Our president always ends his letters with “It’s all about having fun” and that’s the truth!  FMCA members enjoy lots of great benefits designed especially for motorhome owners, but it’s more than that – it’s about being part of the best community of RVers you’ll ever find.

And speaking of benefits – FMCA membership includes a best-in-class travel assistance service, money saving deals on tires, great member-only content, and many more deals, discounts and services for motorhome owners.

 

Thanks for your consideration.  Remember – It’s all about having fun!

Do you have a favorite radio station at home that you miss when you’re on the road? Did you know that you can listen to just about anything you want right from your computer online?

It’s true. Hundreds of radio stations in the United States and around the world broadcast over the Internet at the same time that they broadcast over the airways. You can go to the Web site for your radio station and look for a button, or menu item, to “Listen Live.”

If you can’t find a Web site for your radio station, browse on over to a Web radio directory and look up your station by its call letters. Check it out. It puts a smile on your face to listen to the drive-time traffic report on your big city home radio station while you’re camped in a wilderness national park!

Or, maybe you don’t care about listening to live radio, but you have a particular show you like. I am a fan of “Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me,” a National Public Radio show that broadcasts on Saturday.

I might not think of it until the following Tuesday, but that’s no problem. I just go to www.NPR.org, scroll down until I see their list of programs in the left menu, and click on Wait, Wait … Don’t Tell Me. Then I have choices. I can listen to last week’s show, or I can listen to a past show. I can also choose to download the show as an .mp3 file and listen to it later, maybe while we’re driving.

I’ll either need headphones to be able to hear my computer, or I’ll need a connection to play the computer’s output through the radio. I don’t have a separate .mp3 player, but that would probably be the best option.
Check it out and enjoy! But if you’re using your cellular data card or a satellite dish for your Internet connection, don’t get carried away. While you’re listening, those megabytes are streaming through your connection and counting against your daily or monthly maximums.

How many megabytes? Well, that depends on the station and what settings they use. Generally speaking, you can count on 30 to 60 megabytes per hour. So, do the math and don’t get caught over your limit.
