Ah, they're a new company, they're trying to build they're customer base.

Something that doesn't really make sense to me about this 4G stuff is Clear's network is currently capable of 3-6mbps with bursts up to 10mbps, the salesman actually told me he hit 11mbps one time!!!
Anyway, with reguards to the speeds, HSPA+ which is a 3G technology, the last evolutionary step for GSM before deploying LTE, is capable of 21mbps. So therefore when I hear "4G" I think of speeds that are capable of more than what 3G is capable of.

But right now, as it stands is HSPA+ is capable of higher speeds than CLear's current "4G" nework.
