I did it. I took the plunge. I ordered WiMAX. Thank you Clear for making Portland your second market for the service! I hope it is all that it promises.

I've got seven days for satisfaction with a full refund, 30 days with a partial refund. Month-to-month, no contract. Sweet. I will let everyone know what it's like. Hopefully I'll be able to get it soon and run around town messing around with it. Too bad there aren't any phones that can leverage it yet in the US. It'd be neat if my iPhone could jump on it.

Contract Term: Month to Month

Plan Name: WiMAX Mobile - FREQUENT - No Commitment
Included: Up to 4 Mbps Downlink Speed
Up to 384 Kbps Uplink Speed
0 E-mail Addresses
2 GB monthly bandwidth

I'm sure I'll be using more than two gigs per month if it works well. It's only $10 more for unlimited. I confirmed you can change contract anytime with prorated charges. They sell home service even, so it must be consistent performance... right? 🙂

    I got free shipping too, which normally appears to be $4.95. The charge is waived (must be during their push to get people signed up) and I got UPS Next Day Air Saver. Too bad I ordered this near a weekend (and stormy...)

    Oh well. Hopefully Monday 🙂

    My girlfriend had clear wire in Eugene. They are the devil. Triple check all the fine print. She was in a contract (I know you said you dont have one) and at the end of the year they auto renewed it. They also wouldn't let her cancel service without cancellation fee when she moved to Oregon City, where they didn't offer service. She continued to pay them for 2 more months instead of the cancellation fee because it was cheaper. They wouldn't let her do a cancellation without fee until within 1 week of the end of her contract. Very deceptive practices at that company... Just lettin ya know

    Thanks for the heads up. Maybe part of this re-brand to just "Clear" they're trying to start over from complaints like this. Of course every large company that deals with consumers will have someone with a complaint, legitimate or not. From what I can tell I am purely month-to-month and I have no intention of letting them rip me off 🙂
