Not possible. There is no way in hell clearwire is faster than fiber. They don't have an unlimited downstream plan, and if you go over their daily bandwidth cap (250MB) they will throttle you down to 256Kbps. thats Kbps, not KBps.
I'm guessing this guy is a clearwire employee, because this is either fake or a joke.
Re: Not possible. Jerk I'm not joking at all. I really believe that WiMAX is faster than optic fiber.

Re: Not possible. Then you do not know what you are talking about.
Re: Not possible. LOL WiMax uses EM waves which propagate at the speed of light.
Re: Not possible. They have mine!!!!!!
There is no way in hell you get anything above 256kbps if you actually use your connection on CLEAR....
have got to be kidding!
WIMAX technology yes is FAST, 50+mbps in some "test" areas and was looking to move into the 100mbps market tell the testing fell through....
CLEAR's service the fastest test I have seen was 35mbps in TN; There is NO ONE on the CLEAR network that is seeing over 16mbps anymore, and those who do are cut down to size in a matter of minutes!
You are either a fake CLEAR fan boy, or ONLY use your connection to run speed test a few times a day and that's all.
wimax vs fiber?... you really think wimax is a better tech???
Did you happen to fail physics too?
Might not work at college. Floyd, Clear doesn't have very wide coverage so you'd better check to see if they have service where you sister is going to college. Also, they have slowed down to a crawl in lots of places and even if she can get a signal it might not be usable.
Re: Might not work at college. most colleges have campus-wide wi-fi, even inside dorms. Which is encrypted or relayed through a VPN tunnel. She may not need broadband dongle at all.
