    pioneer, you can buy it at XOHM.com. I work with XOHM so if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Well i have to say i signed up for Xohm yesterday, knowing that my home is out of the coverage area. They activated the device in the store for me. When i got home all i had to do was plug it in, and it works. For being out of coverage, i did a speed test and got 3 down and 1.5 up, speeds were not to shabby. The home service is $35 a month with a $10 off promotion. If you lock in now you can pay for $25 for life. No matter what happens -- Xohm could become clearwire in the coming months or vice versa or whoever else can get the largest market share.

    Baltimore is currently the only officially supported xOhm location. So if you are from the Balt/DC area, and are interested in Xohm, i would recommend signing up now before prices change.

    Oo yes, the home modem - though large and clunky - is powered by a 12v 2a brick. It has 2 ethernet ports and 2 external antenna plugs. If i wasnt so afraid of drilling a hole in my roof i think this might be the perfect companion.

    Yeah so how exactly do you sign up for this if you dont have a baltimore address?

    I heard folks were using fake addresses, then changing it once the account was created with their real ones.

    Anyone try this?

    I've had this service going on two years from ClearWire. At the onset, it wasn't something to phone home about because bandwidth throughput was very slow. However, as the coverage area became more widespread, download/upload speeds increased dramatically. Signal quality has been very reliable here in Washington state.

    In the coming months, the Clear™ brand will replace the XOHM service name previously used by Sprint Nextel in the Baltimore, Md., market. Clearwire expects current XOHM customers to experience a seamless transition, and they will continue to enjoy the current benefits of their devices, service plans and features.
