WiMAX Down, Other Alternatives?

Recommended Posts

WiMax has been killed off, are there any alternatives to something like Clear/ClearWire with a fair amount of data and cost?

You're not going to find something similar to the data cost of Clear but there are great metered plans out there.

Boost Mobile just announced a 10GB, $50 a month plan for a wifi hotspot. That's probably one of the best rates you will find.

Compared to the standard cost other Hotspot plans, there are great options out there.

Now I am really confused.

 

If you had simply stated other options, I wouldn't be questioning anything.

 

However, you state there are great options without providing examples or qualification.

 

I am interested in seeing what you consider 'great' metered options.

 

And if you think I am being snarky or negative, I am not. I am sincerely interested in seeing some specific examples of great (metered or not) plans, as I am sure many others who are losing clear service soon will be interested in as well.

We can't compare today's pricing of options to what was the pricing of yesterday's options. I'm talking strictly on the standard data cost options available from Carrier A versus the data cost options from Carrier B, Carrier C and so on and so forth.

 

That's all I'm saying.

I was under the impression that Sprint was going to migrate WiMAX users to LTE by providing another compatible device free of charge, or at least cheaply; I guess I was wrong.

I was hoping they would, but seems like they are just dropping all clear customers without any type of effort re-capturing or converting them to either existing or special sprint plans/equipment.

 

Seems like a bad move to not even try to keep some type of revenue coming in.

Believe it was for Sprint users who had WiMax phones and not the clear customers who used WiMax as a home internet. 

 

For home internet users they are sending emails out that suggest other internet services providers.

Does anybody know any Clear/ClearWire resellers that offer Unlimited data and can still activate devices?

    • Something else I forgot to mention, the V40 is enabled for calling plus on LTE and wifi, and it has been working very well so far. I usually keep it disabled for WiFi, since my WiFi is a bit weak in some parts of my house.
    • A little anecdotal note on radio performance. I am currently a location with known poor coverage. We have 3 new phones - iPhone XS, XS Max, and LG V40. The iPhones are having no trouble picking up a usable LTE signal inside, but the V40 only connects to 3G unless I go outside, and the data is barely usable. It is band 26 LTE (800MHz) based on Signal Check on the V40 when I go outside and pick up the LTE signal. Actually now that I think about it, the V40 is probably on 1xrtt inside, not 3G, because Signal Check is showing 800 for both CDMA and LTE.
    • I second the LG V30+. I've had mine for over a year now, and I'm very pleased with the RF performance. I too live in a somewhat rural area, and also travel quite a bit, and I haven't been disappointed at all. RF performance is high on my list of must-haves when shopping for a new phone. The V30+ also makes use of all the current network technologies offered by Sprint, as far as I know. I haven't been able to test out VoLTE yet (not live in my home area), but it's on the compatibility list. I haven't been shopping, but I have seen the V30+ offered at very good prices recently.
    • Yeah it is. East of Sacramento

    • Is this in Cali? The T-Mo roaming is great news, but it would be nice to confirm that USCC roaming is still working on the Pixel devices.
