So Long, Clear WiMax...

I shipped my Clear WiMax devices back to Clear today. It was fun while it lasted. See my previous post about my experiences with them. Overall I say that Clear is great, except you start to feel its slowness when you want to download anything more than a small file, and you also feel it when you need to upload anything. VoIP works, and video chat works decently.

My final comment about Clear, and then I'll probably never mention it again on this blog...  When you sign up for a 2-year contract to lease the equipment, it truly is a 2-year contract. I tried explaining to them that I was getting married and moving to a location where there is absolutely no Clear service, but I still had to pay the termination fee. Seems kind of silly to me, but I just had to suck it up and pay the $80.

So long, Clear WiMax. I'll miss you, but I'm looking forward to my speedy Comcast connection.
