RE: Aircard Slowing Down

Well I never said I'm not paying my fair share. But to be honest the average ClearWire 4G user was using 8Gigs per month prior to Netflix launching their version of IPTV. I don't have access to the current numbers but I was told they have almost doubled. The 3G networks will eventually be going away and either replaced with LTE or WiMAX, I would bet on LTE/TD or LTE lite for ClearWire/Sprint if they can stop the bleeding.

RE: Aircard Slowing Down

I would think somebody using a dedicated 4G device would use significantly more data than a person with a phone that has 4G capability. Most people that get a 4G card/router are using it as their primary internet connection. Not so with a phone. Anyway, just an observation.

RE: Aircard Slowing Down

That is correct a data modem or device that gives you analog phone lines and a data
router. Try tethering your Sprint unlimited phone and you will see an increase in charges.

RE: Aircard Slowing Down

I tether all the time. In fact I am considering ditching the internet at the house and going all tether!!! Speeds are in the low 1.x mbps which is totally acceptable to me. Like I said, they don't flinch at 10 to 20 gigs. ANd I don't go anywhere near that. Now if I stream netflix thru my phone, that would be interesting. Even then, we only watch 2-4 movies a month. And honestly don't know if that speed can keep up with a movie. I am thinking SD it could. HD it would struggle.
