Re: Attention CLEAR - You're about to lose a ton of customers
That's actually a pretty good title for the thread. I suspect that you will be seeing quite a bit of publicity on this issue (and DSLReports had it first) in the coming few days and weeks.
Clear really got sneaky on this one. First, they revise their Acceptable Use Policy in June, adding quite a bit to the "Excessive Utilization of Network Resources" section, and now they're putting the screws to their users with
no subtle notification of changes in policy. (Actually SysOp pointed out there is notification if you log into your account at Clear.com, but I never do that).
Even if Clear comes out and owns up to what is going on, I suspect what is already going on will hurt their reputation. Well...maybe not, seeing how the majority of their customers probably blindly sign up, lured by outrageous claims on commercial advertisements, and never do a lick of research online. Maybe they'll learn someday.
