    Holy crap... I don't believe it. It's just TOO high to be a metered WiMax connection. Pics of the setup?

    Then why post in the WiMax thread? Because you have an extremely high connection that is wired and has nothing to do with the topic at hand other than it being an Internet connection?

    Uhm because I felt like it!

    Actually my point was that for the same money my comcast blows the wimax out of the water w/ 4 other machines on the network, while theres no way you get those speeds (9mbs) on wimax unless you are the only machine using bandwidth

    Really!!!!

    Who give a crap if its wireless or wired.... My machine is wireless. since I allready have a cable coming into my house why would I want to go wireless for the same money......Uhm why?


    broadband = 45.00 per mo.
    wimax = 45.00 per mo.


    Difference being one has a wire and double + the speed for the same money, seems like a no brainer too me!

    I can take my modem anywhere in the footprint. To add the usb-modem unlimited 4g stick its only 10/mo more.. = 55/mo for 10Mb/s Home + 10Mb/s mobile usb stick

    27607 raleigh nc doesnt have much for hi-speed residential internet providers.

    59/mo RR Cable (TWC) 10Mb/s (same as my 45/mo)

    Verizon FIOS has not hit this part of the triangle yet.

    Its still wireless. He could technically pick it up and take it anywhere with coverage and an outlet.

    This is great news for people in more rural areas that get totally overlooked by broadband companies. They will be able to get affordable reasonably fast internet. And with a lower cost of infrastructure due to the size of a single wimax tower so it can be actually affordable for the company to provide the service to these areas.
