Just not two weeks ago I got an envelope in the mail touting their home service plans and it was filled with their latest promo for home service.  But since I own a Clear device maybe that's why... it looks like if you have the device you can still get service... for now anyways.

So, that's possible to active a Clear device with Sprint

 

I don't know, but most (or all) clear devices self activate though a captive portal type web service (separate from their web site). I don't know if this is still active or not though.

Signing a contract with the cable company is like making a deal with the mob. Sooner or later they are going to be coming for your arm or leg and squeeze you until your whole family is swimming with the fish.

As a responsible landlord, if you don't want them to modify the wall, you should provide them the Internet and modify the wall as you wanted.

Cable's price was going over the roof. And apparently Verizon start to refuse providing DSL services.

 

Yeah depending on the area, Verizon is pushing strictly their fiber solution.

Hoping in future, Sprint will have an LTE based home internet (with unlimited data )

There will never be a truly unlimited wireless ISP option due to how much the "last mile" is shared. Even Clear has a soft cap of about 100GB. One can only hope that if Sprint offers fixed wireless at all that the caps are generous.

 

If you want a truly unlimited connection you'd best start lobbying your local government to build out a FTTH network that they could then choose to lease out or operate themselves.

Both Freedompop and another that is based in Portland are still offering service to new customers

If sprint is going to sell wholesale to others,,, why kill clearwire?  dosent make sence to me.

 

 

"FreedomPop's high speed wireless internet service runs on Clearwire's 4G WiMax network. The service will expand to include Sprint's 4G LTE network in 2013".

 

 

 

 

 

Millenicom ... was the name of the provider in Portland.  They offer unlimited to a point,, then if you go over a soft cap too often you have to start paying for two accounts according to the web site..

Oh and Freedompop is by no means cheeper then Clear,,,, 10 gig for 19.00 then 0.007 per meg after that,,, with my average usage of about 200 gig per month,, remeber this is a home ISP,,, not for a phone,,,, that comes to about 1400.00  a month.

 

200,000 Megs * 0.007 = 1400.00

100G caps is pretty reasonable and I'm OK with it

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
