I have clearwire for home and mobile internet. Its awesome most speeds average between 6-10mb!
Wow, that upload is more like it!!
And the only difference is using the Sprint modem instead of the Clearwire modem?
I thought that the max speed on Clear was ~6Mbps? How are you getting so much more than that? (Am I missing something?...)
6Mbps is the stated "up to" just like Sprint 3G is deemed as 600k "up to" 1.4Mbps. The difference being it is common to reach or exceed the 6Mbps threshold with the 4G WiMAX dongle. There are popular spots around Portland that I regularly get 10Mbps or higher showing on speedtest.net & speakeasy tests repeatedly.Originally Posted by conan86
I've ran countless speed tests only because I'm traveling all around the metro area 100+ miles! leaving my notebook connected continuiously. This not what a typical subscriber would demand from it, but none the less I wanted to know what the limitations are thus far.
It seems that Clear has limited uploads so far in every market to 512k, while the Sprint U300 is much higher so far in Baltimore and Portland. Not sure yet what Comcast's USB dongle performs like.

I did phone Sprint asking about the higher pings and slightly less signal strength compared to Clear's Motorola data card today. They had very little info in "special technical support"? anyway they are getting back to me later today.
wasn't the upload speed capped at 500 kps?

On Clear 4G, not Sprint 4G apparently.
Sprint claims "up to 12Mbps" which is accurate. I can get just over 13Mbps in certain parts of town at times.Originally Posted by Cuthroat
Well, at least Sprint will have released a 4G Android phone by then if that's your thing. I just want the data card my self.
Wow thats amazing..... Yeah I too just want the data. Maybe something like a MiFi that is 3/4g. I would buy it ASAP!
