"Great Personal Internet for Home & Travel"5.0 starson by Blaiszik
Pros: Cheap Unlimited Rate Plans
Inexpensive Hardware Considering there are No Service Contracts
$35/mo Service is Faster, Cheaper, and More Reliable than my slow tier DSL from Centurylink
OMG it Works for Xbox Live!
Cons: Wifi on the device is kind of weak...but for a 3" square portable device I can't complain too much. If you want it to cover a decent sized house with a good signal you will probably want a repeater of some sort.
Summary: I live alone and the basic $35/mo plan is all the internet I need. I get a consistant 2 Mbps downstream and about .3 up. If you are into downloading tons of HD shows or multi gigabyte games to your PC or game console on a regular basis then this probably won't cut it. However, if you are in an area with a great signal and have the $50/mo plan it might...
I've been trying to cut the cord on my wired internet for some time now, but it was either too expensive or the connection too unstable to work for Xbox Live.
I have seen the comments on how hard it is to return the devices to Clear and get a refund if you are unhappy with the service. I have to admit I was hesitant to try Clearwire myself because of the complaints so I picked up the hardware from Best Buy in case I wanted to return it without a hassle.
In areas with a good signal the Voyager and Clear service can easily compete with basic to mid teir DSL/Cable internet.
