Hesse: Sprint's Future Includes Clearwire and WiMax
Are they crazy!
I've never experienced any better speeds than 3G with WiMax, it can't penetrate buildings very well, it chews up your battery, and if you get a 4G phone they strap on an extra $10 charge for this crappy excuse for high speed data! 👿
This is most defiantly Mr. Hesse's fist misstep in awhile.
I'm just pissed that I'm locked into a contract for my Mi-Fi and live in a crappy WiMax coverage Area when the other carriers have better high speed coverage. ☹️
I think the 2.5 GHz frequency is more to blame than the technology itself.
The issue is cell site density as much as it is BRS 2500/2600 MHz propagation. Clear has not co located on every Sprint cell site. So, in many 3G/4G markets, Sprint PCS 1900 MHz site density is currently greater than Clear BRS 2500/2600 MHz site density. And that leads to inconsistent WiMAX coverage.
Mi-Fi is 3G only. What does that have to do with 4G or WiMax?

MiFi is a product made by Novatel, not a generic name for a personal WiFi hotspot. Like calling all gelatin dessert "Jell-O".
You said you had a 4G MiFi.... which don't exist. He was right to correct you.
Now, feel free to complain about your OVERDRIVE!
I don't talk about my Ford... because I drive a Jeep. See my logic?
7mps download that is better then comcast many a times. Though I am sure there isnt as many users sharing my 4G then people sharing comcast.
I live in an old school building that was built in 1931 and its all brick. WiMax appears to penetrate great. I canceled comcast and now I am saving $35 a month. Do some research before you buy...
and if you get a 4G phone they strap on an extra $10 charge for this crappy excuse for high speed data!
they charge the extra $10 on all smart phones, dont they?
