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.

Jerk I'm not joking at all. I really believe that WiMAX is faster than optic fiber.

Clear has never throttled my connection. I would have felt it by now if they ever did such a thing.

You should believe that light travels faster than sound.

Optic Fiber uses light waves
WiMax uses sound waves

Are you an idiot?

LOL WiMax uses EM waves which propagate at the speed of light.

This is the single most ridiculous post I've seen on DSLReports yet.

Clearwire is throttled, shared, half-duplex bandwidth. They barely have enough bandwidth for 1 customer, let alone 100s or 1000s. Clearwire has a consistent record of pissing off >50% of their customers with bad service, termination fees, and substandard (less than DSL) sustained bandwidth.

The OP is either a Luddite, a troll or a employee of Clearwire.

Speed of light does vary significantly by medium(Vacuum, copper, air, fiber cable). But it is most certainly not related to the speed of sound. lol

Ok you win. The speed of light is not related to the speed of sound.
