That is fast.

Still, Clear is just that inconsistent. I could get a speedtest of about 8Mbps but only to find I was downloading files at 200K. The mobile service is the worst. You can't even maintain a constant signal driving down dean martin.

Yes, this absolutely kills Cricket in which I was paying $45 a month for it. For $30 it cannot be beat, and is faster than Cox at the same price level. Here is another test result....

There is a reason why so many have a distaste for their service.

Like I said, try downloading a large file and not at 5AM. It's not so speedy then.

Maybe not, but that is what Cox at home is for. I just do web surfing at work and it does just fine. Out of curiosity, I just got home from work and ran that speed tester on Cox. Wow is all I can say.

T-Mobile HSPA+ just took the lead for fastest wireless provider in Vegas.
never knew T-Mobile had ISP
