Re: Their own fault.. but didn't you know, that wireless broadband is the future?
Sorry, I will take a wireline any day of the week over a wireless connection. I only use wireless when I'm on the go.
At home, I expect a certain level of performance.
On the go, I know I'm on a wireless line, and do not fully use the connection as I would at home, knowing there are limitations to such a connection.
I even mind my net manners when I'm at a hotel.
And yes, I do believe Clear has brought this on itself, as their marketing is giving you the impression that this wireless connection is just as good as a top tier cable or fiber connection (funny on the fiber, I know).

Re: Their own fault.. Mobile wireless access to the Internet will be the focus for the next several years and will be where significant portions of capital are invested. However, fixed wireless is not a replacement for wired connections except for difficult/remote locations.
sorry. lol /sarcasm
I assumed it was sarcasm, but I wanted to distinguish between fixed and mobile. Many people tend to lump all wireless together.

Problem is, this company attempts to establish its product as "in line" with wired connections. It even goes so far as to differentiate its "mobile" broadband connection coverage area and its ISP operations area (ie. I plugged in my address. It said I didn't qualify for it's residential ISP router & service, but their mobile 3G/4G hotspot product was A-OK).
I'm all for cellular wireless companies imposing boundaries on their service. However, if you're explicitly competing against offerings of DSL & cable, then your advertised product should actually match up.

I hope you're right all the Canadians are begging for wireless from America. So far satellite internet from America for Canadians is garbage but at least it's far cheaper in price than broadband (wired) in Canada.
