Clearwire has added a pay-as-you-go option for its 4G wireless broadband service. Aimed at "tech-savvy Gen Y customers" looking to avoid lengthy contracts, the Rover Stick and Rover Puck offer commitment-free access to the company's WiMAX network. Priced at $100, the "Stick" is a USB modem for one machine, and it's compatible with Windows as well as OS X. The "Puck" is a pricier $150, but provides wireless access for up to eight devices (be they computers, smartphones, a gaming console and so on).

Thats faster and cheaper than Comcast's internet for $40 a month. Our internet with Comcast is also utter crap, it goes out atleast 10 times a day. Sometimes 25 breaks easily. I wonder what their bandwidth regulations are.

I can't image the cap would be great. :/ But if I had coverage I would definitely get this! I would love it so much.

Hmm...would be tempting except for Clearwire works for crap during online PvP, PvM shooter games.

From reading reviews of Clearwire over the years it seems they don't exactly have great latency since they are wireless and have some bad stories of port/application blocking, they may have changed but just be aware. I personally wouldn't do it as I just can't trust wireless companies as being my only way online.
