Clear Wireless Technology

July 22nd, 2011 No comments

As wireless Internet technology progresses and spreads, many more people are feeling the need to get connected to wireless networks. The mistake that many people are making is that they believe that only popular cell phone companies such as Verizon and AT&T offer wireless Internet service. However, in actuality, there are other companies, such as Clear Wireless, that, despite having no direct connection to supplying cell phones or cellular service, specialize in providing wireless Internet to a huge range of people. For specific information on how Clear stacks up to its competitors, as well as the opinions of their customers regarding their service, check out the Clear reviews available on a number of relevant websites. In the meantime, however, here are a few brief points on Clear wireless service as it relates to its main competitors.

As it happens, the world of wireless Internet has recently upgraded from 3G to 4G service, with some claiming that 4G is actually up to four times faster than 3G. Now, there are two main competitors that have emerged in the expanding 4G service industry: the LTE service offered chiefly by Verizon Wireless, and the WiMax service offered by Clear and Sprint. Both services are considered 4G, and therefore both can offer you extremely fast and reliable wireless Internet service. However, there are a few differences, mostly regarding pricing packages, that you ought to be aware of if you are debating between which service to purchase.

The most noticeable difference between the two services is that Clear’s WiMax service has a base price that you pay for complete service, which is generally a bit cheaper than most packages you can buy from Verizon. However, Verizon’s LTE service is offered in a higher variety of packages, with different prices depending upon factors such as how much storage space you will be using on your wireless devices. Another thing to be aware of is that most LTE packages include automatic 3G/4G combination service, which enables your wireless devices to automatically switch to 3G service if you are in an area where 4G is not yet available. WiMax offers the same service, but it is part of a slightly more expensive payment package.

These are just a few of the basic differences between the two leading 4G service providers on the market today. If you are considering getting connected and trying to make up your mind between the two, there are plenty of comparisons available online that can help you to choose which service is best for you. Ultimately, no matter which choice you make, you will soon be enjoying the fastest and most reliable wireless Internet service in existence.

Hello,

Fox news is reporting that Osama Bin Laden is dead. He’s been on the run for ten years. Confirmed that the US killed him in Pakistan. DNA tests proved his body was in fact, authentic. We currently have his body in our possession. Apparently this happened around a week ago but they were waiting for DNA test results. They obtained DNA from his family to confirm the match.

This is great news for America!

T-Mobile Nationwide Service Disruption

November 3rd, 2009 1 comment

image It appears T-Mobile is having nationwide service disruptions.

T-Mobile Official Forum: http://tinyurl.com/yhezxt5

Services affected:

  • Voice
  • Data
  • Text & MMC
  • All (Yes, Including 911)

Their official message on their support site looks like this

This is the second major blow to T-Mobile since the sidekick issue on October 11th that  caused cascading failures and ultimately the loss of all data for T-Mobile Sidekick users. This issue was not directly T-Mobile’s fault but they are somewhat responsible of which provider is chosen to store their client’s data.

It’s very hard to believe that all of their servers could be affected like this nationwide.

Here’s some reference as to how Cell Networks work:

    Update: Just watched a T-Mobile commercial where they ask “What do you want” How about the service to work?

Update 2: The search term “tmobile down” was number 6 on Google and rated at “volcanic” on their activity scale!
