'unlimited' Why do they still keep using 'unlimited'? we already have been raped by this term for years and now it is just sad they keep using it.
it is like going for all you can eat crab legs and recieving them frozen. i mean you can have unlimited but we never said they would be cooked. oh you want them cooked...that is going to cost you 5 dollars per cluster.
Re: Regularly use 150GB+, never throttled I was one of those customers as well. I never had a problem with "going over"

| |said by skeechan:Same here. I am in an area with limited users, so I constantly see 10-15Mbps. I am always over 50GB a month of use.
I'm one of the 5 people really happy with Clear's unlimited Wimax. I consistently get 10Mb speeds for $50. Thankfully my office is in an industrial area which probably doesn't see a lot of Wimax traffic so I have never been throttled. The slowest speeds I ever see is about 8Mb.
So there is no specific consumption limits before getting throttled. It appears to only happen in congested areas.
As far as switching from speed tiers to usage tiers, 40GB is okay for casual users. Currently the $35 deal gets you unlimited use (throttling aside) but 1.5Mb service. If you don't use over 40GB anyway, this would be an improvement.

competeing carrier and caps If you roam on another carriers towers is that calculated into the cap? it was posted 150gb with no throttling and i was wondering how roaming is handled on a data plan.
it was explained to me that after you reach your limited unlimit with verizon your priority is dropped. how would that be handled on a competing carriers towers.
not trying to derail the thread.
Re: competeing carrier and caps what roaming? for 3g??? Wimax from Clear doesnt roam.
Re: competeing carrier and caps They're not the only Wimax provider, many ISPs use Wimax but they're the only national provider now. And they're roaming is on 3g and most likely with Spent.

Re: competeing carrier and caps i guess i meant in general. should have asked in a different thread i think. i guess i am asking if you roam on atat towers does that go against your 5gb cap. if you are on limited unlimit can they throttle on a competitors towers.
Typo Carl I think there is a typo somewhere that says I can get 2 gigs for $20 or 40 gigs for $40, but in the story says 2 gigs or 4 gigs. Please fix Carl.

Ah yes...the "Pay More, Get Less = More options" talk Yes, consumers absolutely love it....the love "taking control" of their plans by having their wallets raped for little or no actual value.
Yes, we love it.
"POWER USER" Can I download 1TB a month. Is that a power user?
I would had jump on this if Yeah my friends have clear for their net here in NYC no issue since they keep playing COD2 on the WiiU and xbox and no lag. Now if they would only have the service in NJ's shore i would had jump on it. Also they should make the 2GB under 15 and they would surely gain more customers. I know i don't work for then but had they implemented this price tiered they would win over more customers away from the big telcos
Unlimited GB-40 to 50 bucks
More horsecrap So you get throttled performance because you exceeded an undefined limit which they call "unlimited". Guess it takes a degree in law to interpret the word "unlimited" to mean throttles performance for exceeding and unknown amount of data. These cretins are nothing but pustules looking for more people to infect.
More proof that the rule of law is rotted by the concerted agreement between corporate Amerika and the judicial system which condones such blatant deceit and outright lying.
on the way.. to usage based billing they go.. this is a pre-text to a complete buy-out buy Sprint.. then Sprint will kill off unlimited leaving Tmobile/Metro no incentive to keep it..
Umm NO. Sprint is buying them. Sprint and their subsidiaries are selling UNLIMITED plans that are LIMITED.
Shove off hosers.
speeds? I didn't see mention of what speeds these new plans would offer.
Unlimited Defined: You get unlimited 3G/4G connectivity to the internet. We never said you would get unlimited bandwidth, or download upload speeds. So we feel we can cap your Bandwidth / Speed at any figure we want to. We just have to give you connections to the internet anytime you want for the month of service you paid for, even if the speed is limited to 256Kb or less. Thank you for playing!
Bits or Bytes Given their reputation you have to ask if 2GB & 40GB are Bytes or Bits. Speeds are typically measured in bits, after all.
I have concerns... I got Clear the second they opened their first store in Philly and have had few complaints with their speeds or service. Clear doesn't even offer the plan I've got anymore. (3 devices, unlimited, $80 a month, no contract) And the plans they've got in place are way more for way less service, assuming these tiers get deployed fully. Routinely do 200+ GB a month in strict downloads, not counting streaming or gaming. The streaming is a mite hiccuppish, but since I just watch old shows that aren't in HD, I can drop down video quality to compensate. If they bump me towards their 'new' plans, I'll probably bail.

Existing plans grandfathered? Anyone care to speculate if existing plans will be grandfathered? I'm on the $34.99 1.5Mb/0.5Mb Unlimited and it's perfect for my purposes.
