It would be lovely if they would show you a coverage map without asking for your email, then your street address, then asking you for a credit card number--all without showing you a coverage map or giving any real details about speeds.
This is what I got when I clicked past the "We have no service at your address, but click here to sign up anyway...." box. Not sure why anyone would do that, but at least I got to see the plans!

Umm, it's CLEARWIRE. Go look at the clearwire coverage maps. This is top secret, or even difficult.
(Translation: the coverage is complete shit. Anywhere it'll work, you'll have much better options -- and sometimes for free (i.e. open wifi.) It's nice for "on the road", but their coverage is so spotty, it won't stay connected just driving across the city.)

So I don't know what CLEARWIRE vs. WiMAX vs. LTE vs. EVDO vs. HSPA+ is. In fact, thanks to marketing spin the only thing I really know is that 4G is one more 'G' than 3G and that makes it faster (BTW I have no idea about ping, latency, etc, either... I just know more "mbps" is better, but I don't really know what an "mbps" is).
The point is I want to see a freaking map that says where they have coverage. If they can't do that without first selling me a plan then I know they are FoS.
