    I set up Clear’s WiMax (same service, just not sold by Sprint) at an office in Atlanta, GA. The installation was super easy and it works great. For about $70/month I get 6Mb/1Mb internet and a phone line. If you have Clear/Sprint in your area and you’re sick of your current ISP, I would say make the switch.

    Are cities that already have Clearwire more likely to get 4G. I live in Richmond, VA but there has been no word of 4G here.

    I’ve been waiting for them to say something about Richmond as well.. You would think they would go ahead and “upgrade,” but not sure if it is that simple.. Would love to see it here soon.. I’ll even help them.. :)

    Seems to me that Nashville was amongst the first to get EVDO, but even though we have clear, no WiMax on the horizon *sob*.

    I would have thought that Norfolk, VA would be on the list of cities too. Come on Sprint…make me proud!!!

    Sprint needs to fill Florida with 4G soon…. Florida is a vacational state and it will serve as advertisement itself… Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Sarasota and Tallahassee must be a priority.
