I have no idea what that means nor what it has to do with posting WiMAX Speed Tests..Originally Posted by DiamondElite
Do not post unrelated topics in unrelated forums, you have been warned.
Its sad when this happens. Im on Rogers Wireless in Canada and on their new HSPA+ Network I get about 17Mbps down and 3Mbps down.
Im just saying that 3.75G is just as fast as 4G WiMax at the time being, thats all im saying, no need to take out the ban hammer.Originally Posted by 503ducati

Okay so here are some pics of my usage. The setup that I am using is a netbook with Windows 7 Home Premium and the Clear Connection Manager. My device is a Sprint branded U300 that is currently active for 3G service via Sprint and 3G/4G service via Clear. I guess it technically could be used for 4G through Sprint but then I would have to upgrade my data card plan or purchase the 4G daypass at $9.99 which I'll pass on. I wish they had an option to add 4G to your current plan for $9.99 month with Sprint. But anyways, enjoy the pics.
In the pics, the added red boxes showcase the important details.
This is the best speed I got during my initial testing last night. I wasn't quite in Charlotte, just southeast of it.
Got this today in Langhorne, PA
The real question now how long will it take sprint to spread that 4g out to match their current 3g coverage...?
i didn't copy the link like an idiot but today in Douglasville GA i got 16.1 down with peak at 17.8.
also i got sprint to put me on a promo plan for 3g/4g at 59.99.

The pings are really bad. How can their phone service possibly work?
Those pings are to unrelated hosts that are used for the testing. What would matter a lot would be pings to their own VOIP servers (most probably Sprint's) which tend to be local. If those are bad then they will be in trouble. VOIP service from third party providers like Vonage maybe affected because that's done over the internet, but Clear's VOIP (Sprint's VOIP) will go over their own private network, not the internet, with QOS throughout.Originally Posted by gsmseattle

Had the original Clearwire plan. 750k or whatever. Used to get 800kbps on Toast.net. Happy. Upgraded to 1.5 mbps. It jumped to a blazing 200k. Whoopdedoo. Downgraded back to the original plan. Offered me the 1.5 meg pack at 29.99 for life. So what the hey. Same thing I was paying for the 750. Went with it.
Wimax came knocking. They offered me the same 29.99 rate for life but upgraded it from 1.5 meg 3G to 3 meg 4G. It peaked out at 1.8 then dropped back to an average of 1.4. A big meh.
Got the modem four days ago. Hooked it up. All five lights are on. Full contact. A blazing 1.4 mbps on Toast. Same variables as original test.
Heard the rollout isn't complete for my area, Honolulu, Hawaii. I bet it's even worse on the more rural neighboring isles. I called a tech up to complain and he ran tests. No diff. So, I'm calling back in a few more weeks. Hopefully the infrastructure will catch up with the hype over here eventually.
Haven't tried the usb modem yet, but the old pmcia prewimax one had HORRIBLE reception. The big modem might be ugly and bulky and inconvenient but for signal strength, there was no contest. If the pmcia card got 1 to 2 bars, the big modem got at least three to four.
My friend deals Clear/Wire out here. Told me the first five pmcia cards he sold all came back because it had little or no reception. After that, he stopped stocking them.
Wonder if it's any better with the usb wimax one?
i know when it first rolled out here in ATL it was nowhere near what i am getting now and the reception sucked. thats why i was waiting. (that and the fact that now it's 59 instead of 79) but i have been very happy overall. i dont get 4g where i actually live, but since most of my internet time is working around the city, i dont see the 5gig cap being any kind of issue. plus, at the rate it's expanding i expect to have 4g in my city sometime soon.
