Clear internet

Anyone use Clear internet service? I've heard it's similar to the metropcs service but only internet, lol.

I just need it for the ps3 if they actually DO decide to drop GT5.

Can I just get the internet on the go device and plug it right into the ps3 and have internet or what? Or do I need to get the home modem and hook it up that way?

Also how slow is it?

Had it, hated it. Divide the advertised speed in half to get the true numbers.

I'm getting 18mbps on my 15mbps TW connection. I have their "4G" laptop card for work, too. The 4g is meh, hit or miss depending on location.

Well would it work fine for playing ps3? Honestly have no other uses for it. I work with autocad when I do work from home and it doesn't really require internet.

I'm paying for 12 mbps and I get about 1.5mbps. Drives me nuts and they won't do anything about it.

I'd watch the kill cam and I'm walking and this guy will have been shooting me or at me for 2 or 3 seconds and it never happened on my screen. If there's a storm outside, you'll be lucky to be able to connect at all. We only have it because neither charter or uverse is out here in our neighborhood in Saginaw. We got tired of DSL and didn't want to sign any new contracts.
Wonder how bad Madden 2011 would be
