clear.com substitute?

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by M. John Matlaw, Oct 19, 2015.

  1. Looks like I'm hosed. The Clear hotspot worked well for me for years
    but they're shutting down soon. I can find no flat rate wireless
    unlimited data substitute and have pretty much given up trying.
    Unfortunately, I'll be moving soon so wired internet is out. Looks like
    I'll be paying quite a bit more for limited data but I'm wondering if
    anyone has a suggestion.

    So far, in terms of price, Sprint ($110 for 30 gigs) or Millenicom
    (either $89.99 or $69.99 for 20 gigs) look like the least expensive.
    Sadly, the one review of the Sprint Zing Mobile Hotspot mentions "I also
    find it resetting a lot on the network then causing disconnects."

    Pretty discouraging.

    I've got T-Mobile for my cell for $30 a month which gives me 5 gb but no
    tethering. The T-Mobile $80 a month plan which gets you unlimited 4glte
    only lets you tether 5 gb and I really need to use more than that for
    tablets and computers.

  2. Should have mentioned - I'm in NYC where WISP appears to be just for
    business or entire residential buildings (as opposed to individual
    apartments).

  3. Huge sections of NYC are covered with public and semi-public WiFi.

    Head over to your window and see what's there.

    Note that the Cable Companies offer, as part of
    their wired service, free access to their net
    of WiFi servers, so if you see a good signal
    from Acme Cable, you could call your friend
    and offer to split his monthly bill.

    TWC [time warner cable] if you get it, is great [at least for me]

    $15 a month
