Clearwire Compliment - Best Internet I Ever Had
DULUTH, MINNESOTA -- I feel bad for the people who have trouble with CW - I live in Duluth, MN and the CW tower is on top of the building I live in so the signal on the modem is 5 lights rock solid - its only $36 a month for 1.5 Mbps/256K internet - I test regularly at 1.43 Mbps up and 212 or so down - latency is 69 ms most of the time and will go as high as 130 ms during peak times - severe icing on the tower has causes my speed to drop to around 800 Kbps about twice a year, but this is during a time when satellite TV is going in and out. I'm ready to bundle digital/voip service onto my Clearwire service.
For the ones with trouble, I think the stuff is more signal strength based than a person would think cause the modem has to talk back to the tower and like the radio stations that say they reach out 70 mi or more the stuff is clean out to about 50. CW says 2 or 3 lights is enough - maybe not. 5 lights it rocks.
