While leaving work yesterday, I received a call from 888-657-1456; it was an automated message from Clear to inform me that they had detected ‘unusual usage patterns’ on my connection that may be ‘affecting the performance of their network’. The message went on to express that this could be a sign of a computer virus or an unsecured wireless network.
Guess what guys- I signed up for an unlimited usage 6Mbps plan. I am using said plan to it’s greatest potential. I verified with the sales person that I would be using it 24x7 to watch movies, VPN to work, download ISO images and such and I was told ‘no problem’.
If the WiMax network is affected by my single 6Mbps stream, then Clear has some other issues it needs to address.
I received an email notification this morning informing me that my address was updated on my clear account. I logged in and found that a ‘!!Read Acct History!!’ message had been added beneath my name.
I think I will have some fun calls with Clear over the next few days. :)
