If you have followed my blog, you wills see I have a love-hate relationship with Clear Wireless in Atlanta, GA.
Love: Good speeds in god weather and in the Winter (when trees are bare) up to 10Mbps!
Hate: Inconsistent speeds and inconceivable policies of bandwidth capping
A few weeks ago, I was complaining that Clear was capping my speeds (I assume during ‘peak’ hours) to about 1 Mbps (about 130KBps).
This occurred for a few weeks and then it stopped; I was getting a constant 6-10Mbps 24x7.
For the past few days if I attempt to download something that takes more than 15 minute, I have been enjoying a cap of about 230kbps (about 29KBps):
Tonight I attempted to download the new Ubuntu 10.10 ISO- and after about a quarter hour of decent speed it dropped to the above abysmal speed. Good God Clear- what the Hell are you doing to me?
Luckily I have two other Clear connections in my package that I can switch to and get a resemblance of the speed I was promised when I signed up to Clear about a year ago.
Be warned all- Stay clear of Clear! (if you think you will ever need to actually use your Internet connection!)
