Re: Just two months ago...

said by swintec:

A matter of a couple of months ago there was stories here where Clear said they want users to use it to there full advantage, no caps, no restrictions, etc....Now this? What did they expect would happen? You don't go to a fat camp and offer all you can eat cake and limit it to one or two slices after you have everyone eating.
Yeah, what happened to Clear's "100s of MHZ of spectrum" that all the shills were raving about?

that is putting out to the EU. NOT in terms of what is being used for backhaul. But while we're on it; where is VZ and their LTE? OH! Still in the lab! OOPS!

I agree. Who knows if LTE will even become what VZ or even ATT promise. 3g, 4g, etc are "good" but they cannot provide the kind of service that a cable, DSL, or FTTC connection can. Backhaul is another thing. Of course they are going to oversubscribe service to a point. But its another thing when it is done with abandon and then service (and speeds) suffer. I will give AT&T credit at least on their DSL service. It rarely slows down on me even in the evenings.

nothing happened to it. They're just not using a majority of it at the moment.

They have 100MHz of spectrum. I believe they're using 40MHz on a given tower. That actually should be plenty...

So why is Clear capping and throttling if they have 100 mhz of spectrum but are using a fraction of it?

So why is Clear throttling then?

You can buy LTE from MetroPCS today, just have your credit card ready.

that is pre-LTE as everyone says about Clear. But otherwise its still in the lab as nobody is using it but OOOOO! MetroPCS.

because like all carriers they don't have the bandwidth going to the towers. Smart reason eh? Next time think?

more profit if you aren't beefing up your network.

You really think Clear has copper T1s feeding the towers? Come on.

For real, LTE has been out of the lab for a while now.

Verizon is ready to launch their's, and right off the bat it will be better than Clear's.
