I would bet that most of you out there are geeks like me and have no problem at all setting up your wireless network with a router, modem, and security. There are bunches of folks out there that are clueless about that sort of thing and the thought of a modem with WiFi built-in is very appealing to many. Clearwire has announced a new modem for its 4G service called the Clear Modem.
The modem has 4G wireless broadband capability and has an integrated 802.11n wireless router inside that also supports older and slower wireless protocols. The router is designed to make it easy to share a 4G connection among devices in your home.
The router is good for speeds of up to 3-6 Mbps average with bursts up to 10Mbps. The modem provides wireless connectivity to any WiFi equipped device on Windows, Mac OS X and other OS’s. Clear will sell the modem to you for $120 or you can lease the modem for $7 monthly in addition to your $35 monthly service charge.Filed Under: Technology News
