  1. Clearly there wouldn’t be a reason to leave a good review if they were giving a month of terrible service , nobody would be coming on the site to give a good review if the product they were giving wasn’t any good , I herd about speedtalk on a youtube clip, about how they helped this guys elderly mother get a phone plane that she could afford and being she doesn’t need a big data pack on her plan just a few calls to family during the month they just about custom fit her plan an the price was ridiculously low . she said the service was just as good as the one shes was paying triple for , so ib said i gotta try this network out and here i am , getting the extra time for free was just an unexpected surprise a real delight , tomorrow morning im telling the whole family about these guys .good night google lol…
