Fixed vs Mobile Users?

Does Clearwire behave differently for fixed vs mobile users?

PS. When DSL Reports first started reported on Clearwire there were numerous suggestions of Clearwire being a competitor to cable and DSL. Anyone remember more detail about this?

But with these very low limits clearly those suggestions were wrong.

The difference is fixed users chew up the GB on one tower. Now if that tower is already busy, and speeds are degrading for everyone, whats the most logical step? If there is one guy eating more bandwidth than everyone else combined you solve the problem by getting rid of the power user.

Simple really.

And that's why these wireless services will never be a replacement for wireline services.
