Jaden Garza, the CEO of Nomad Internet abruptly steps down and takes the Internet with him! Many were left without internet as well as influencers were left without income!
Rise Fall of Nomad Internet
It's been a busy week with breaking news, that's for sure.
First, Lazydays Campground closed indefinitely. And now we are hearing about the CEO of Nomad Internet abruptly stepping down.
It's fun being on the road. However, it's no fun being left without the internet.
If you haven't heard about it yet, all you have to do is a quick search of Nomad Internet, and you will find a few influencer videos pop up.
These influencers had contracts with Nomad after being contacted by the CEO himself, Jaden Garza.
However, within the past couple of weeks, they have all broken their contracts because of having no internet.
Yeah, that's a huge problem when you are endorsing a product and you can't even use it.
About Nomad Internet
Nomad Internet started back in 2017. The same year we started RVing.
Since then, they have been in the news and have expanded several times.
They were known for supplying high-speed internet over cellular lines to rural areas and travelers where there was no other option.
A few people have had good luck with it. However, for the most part, many have had bad luck.
And we were one of them. Here is our story.
Our Experience with Nomad Internet
When we started RVing in 2017, I obviously needed good internet since I was an online influencer. My job depended on it.
I started out with OTR Mobile which worked the same way and was the same concept.
Except OTR Mobile was cheaper. I had to purchase an AT&T Netgear Nighthawk from Best Buy.
Once I signed up, they sent me a SIM card! And another, and another, and another.
After being without internet for weeks at a time, I was fed up.
Now, remember, I was on the road in our RV so it wasn't easy for me to keep receiving the SIM in the mail, especially if I wasn't stationary for more than a few days!
So, I searched around and found Nomad Internet. They supplied the high-speed, unthrottled, internet through the cellular lines the same way and used the AT&T Netgear Nighthawk too.
So I was all set!
Or so I thought.
Switching Internet Providers
And it started all over again.
They sent me SIM after SIM after SIM. They switched it from AT&T to Verizon and back to AT&T again and again.
That meant I had to pay to have the Nighthawk unlocked because it was locked to AT&T. And without an account, they wouldn't do it.
Do you want the blue plan, the red plan, or the pink plan? When basically, they were all the same...garbage!
What a nightmare. There is even a Facebook group. You can go all the way back to the beginning when it was started in 2019 and read complaint after complaint.
With that said, I'm not surprised about what is happening. I am surprised that so many people didn't research it and see how long people were getting taken for a ride.
Nomad Internet Why Everyone Is Talking About It
What happened was the CEO of the company, abruptly stepped down.
And it seemed that with his step down, down went the internet.
Everyone was trying to use it but no one had service.
Influencers who had sent Jaden Garza an email asking what was going on were suddenly terminated.
When an influencer signs a contract with a major Brand, they depend on that income.
So besides being without internet...they were also left without their income.
That is all we know for right now. However, we will keep you updated on what happens next.
