Based on a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Clearwire plans to introduce new, pay-as-you-go WiMax service in the near future. The company, which called for a press conference on Monday, August 30, is building out a WiMax network in cooperation with Sprint. Sprint and Clearwire's WiMax covers 49 markets in the U.S., but still only a handful of devices — including just two phones — can access the network. The addition of a pay-as-you-go service model could help Clearwire and Sprint sign up new customers if the pricing is competitive enough. Additional details will become available during the press conference.

I'm on Clear PrePaid

I've got a Motorola laptop card and use it on a 4g only unlim acct for $30/moClear is great if your in a city with 4g I have gotten upto 20mbps dl, 1.5mbps UL 60ms ping. Typically 10mbps dl 1mbps ul and 80ms. Cant wait to get a Samsung Epic and then go with a data only plan.
Do they allow data only plans for smartphones anymore? I know that Verizon and AT&T don't, and I don't think that T-Mobile does either (though I could be wrong about that since T-Mobile doesn't have coverage in my area)

Hopefully Clear will force Verizon to keep LTE pricing reasonable

I'm hoping Clear will be a competitive force enough to make Verizon be reasonable with their LTE pricing.
We need the cost per megabit to come down in the U.S.!
Did you just see Verizons $80/month prepaid 5GB option? LMAO talk about overpriced.
Keep dreaming. Verizon only cares what AT&T is doing. They don't even consider Sprint a competitor. When the Alltel merger was being ecided by Justice and the FCC Verizon had to remind us not to denegrate Sprint to customers saying we needed to mak...

Please, please, please, please...

... let it be an extension of the Virgin Mobile prepay plan ($40/mon for 3G, $50/mo for 3G/4G).

Pay as you go means something other than unlimited. Clearwire is already sold without any contracts.
