Been using clearwire for a few years. It has always had problems but there isn't much for an ISP around here. Sometimes it is a good connection but for the most part, it lags. I mainly use it to play online games or watch youtube videos but my experience always sucks due to my connection. I find it odd that the connection is usually clear late at night around 2-3 AM. One day I was checking my netgear router's logs online. I find a message saying
[DOS attack: Smurf] attack packets in last 20 sec from ip [18.104.22.168],

I search the IP address and behold
Host name: 96-24-48-150.klt.clearwire-dns.net.
IP address: 22.214.171.124
DOS stands for Denial of service, and the log had a pretty nice list of attacks and times, all from the same IP.
Awhile back they contacted us saying we are using too much bandwidth or something. I find it weird since I rarely ever download anything nor do i play heavy online games like World of Warcraft.
not sure if this is common practice for companies but if so, their bandwidth cap is extremely low. maybe they should invest into more "pipes"
What a ripoff company. Im glad their stocks are doing terrible. Going to try and find something else. I would rather have dial-up because atleast I get my money's worth from that.
Going to refuse to pay the cancellation fee, I'd take them to court before I have to pay. The moral of the story is, your clearwire connection sucks because they make it suck.
