Good "A great secondary internet connection for working on the road or when my primary internet fails"
Bad "Clear's coverage isn't as broad as I would like"
Overall "Definitely worth it, but check to make sure they cover the areas where you need to use it."

I have a primary internet connection at my home through my cable provider, but it isn't always the most reliable. That, combined with the fact that I am on the road for meetings somewhat often and Clear's promise of unlimited internet at a decent price, made their offer seem worth it. I purchased their Voyager Hotspot and the 1.5Mb/s ($35/month) plan. It arrived in a few days and worked right out of the box.

Overall, I've been pretty happy with it. I typically get slightly better speeds than I pay for. While their wireless coverage isn't as extensive as I would like in a perfect world, Clear does have coverage in most of the places that I find myself, bu this is something worth looking into before signing up for their service.

Not really. Only for some people. For many of us it works just like this user. I use it at home and it's rock solid! I get better speeds than i pay for too.

Re: clearwire sucks

Ya if you live in a invested area! (A area that has several towers that they invested in). If you live in a area like I do only 2 towers with 3 clear antenna shared by 5 -10 other antenna per tower ...well lets just say clear is clearly over promising once again on what it can deliver. Oh wait ...didn't they already get sued for the same exact issue than file BK an now like a weed sprout up under a different dba to over promise once again? I literally only use my internet 5x per week and that is to check email and play a mmo for about 30 minutes.
My total bandwidth usage for a month is 900 + or - 20-60 megs. Yet Clear throttles my connection so badly that in the time I have spent trying to write this review I have had to copy it to the clipboard and refresh several times. Clearly avoid Clear and their blatant lies about unlimited internet.

I couldnt have said it any better....not only does the internet suck ass. why is it that it saids press 1 for englis then u press 1 and you still cant understand the person on the other end. The they did a transaction on my credit card at 3:33 in the morning with out my permission. Im asleep at that time so i did not give them permission of any kind. My lawyer said that is fruad and theft. I agree with you and im gonna tell everyone. I own a pizza shop and we deliver to about 10,000 people a month and on my boxes will be a not posted to all my customer how shity they are and they are nothing but thiefs.
