I don't think it'd be suitable for a home connection would it? I've tried EVDO, and while it's pretty cool, the latency sucks...
Just tried Clearwire and i'ts great except for coverage. If what they say is true coverage will quickly expand. Currently Modesto, Ripon and Salida has full coverage. My city is next, And Bay area is coming soon. They have towers in Stockton, Tracy and some parts of cities in Bay area. They said all those towers went up in four months.
I had broadband, faster than cable, while driving on the freeway from Modesto to Manteca (where I live)
Once they get my city done next month I will switch my home connection from cable to clearwire. I will also add a router/gateway to my carputer and use clearwire. I will be a moving hotspot. I feel real lucky right now cuz I was looking into using cell phone for internet and was really dicouraged with the cost and speeds offered. Clearwire should cure all of worries.

Cost $39.95 per month. $14.95 for the first 3 months. It's designed for home use. Twice as fast as cable.Originally Posted by silencery

the part I LIKE IS what it does! dedicated broadband internet in the car! not bad for the price. just have to wait or move to get it.

I totally agree with you. After I tried this out, I can't think of one reason why this wouldn't be "the next big thing". I was just letting people know that, if you're lucky enough to live in an area with this available, you gotta at least try it. It really is quite amazing what you can get for your money. I was just feeling fortunate that it came my way.Originally Posted by numbers
Clearwire uses a state-of-the-art wireless modem that can be plugged into a desktop computer, laptop, or local network. It works by transmitting signals to and from nearby cellular towers instead of using a traditional phone line. That means you have the flexibility to set up the modem anywhere in your home or office — upstairs or downstairs, inside or outside. Plus, your Clearwire connection is always on and always secure.Originally Posted by lez
This is straight from the clearwire.com site. It works great in my car. Requires no set-up. Just plug in the ethernet wire and power and you're done. Trouble is that it currently isn't available in very many places.
I'd be laughing right now if there weren't folks out there who believe and trust that. I swear marketing is destroying this country and it makes me sick....and always secure.
Do you pay by the data transferred or is it a flat rate per month?
