I just found out my ISP (Clear) got bought out by Sprint.

Clear Offered really good competitive 4G Home Internet service in my area (I get better than DSL, 12/1 for $50/mo.) and I actually got a Combo Router/Modem very much like what Verizon would offer.

Problem? Clear got bought out by Sprint. Sprint only offers small scale Mobile Hotspots. I was really ****ing lucky to get the Modem/Router that I got back in April. Better? My service isn't changing. I may even get faster internet in the future. Who knows?

Problem is that if 4G goes to the wayside and I want to upgrade, I might end up upgrading to an inferior product. Only good ISP in my area is Comcast and **** that.

I have comcast and losing internet in the wee hours of the night multiple times is pretty common, also they are pretty expensive in my area.

TC, you've seen in my other topic that I'm a Clear customer too. What modem do you have? I have the series M: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/31OS1Gvkh3L._SY300_.jpg

I can't look at Clear's plans anymore now since they got acquired.

My other options are Comcast, AT&T, maybe RCN but I gotta check because they are picky in my area.

As others have said. It really is a matter of where you live. I have always loved Comcast, but others obviously don't, so the service probably varies widely by what area you live in.

I would literally kill to get Comcast put back in my neighborhood as opposed to the garbage ISP they were replaced by.

My RT-N56U has a feature that allows me to plug in a USB internet dongle to it and utilize its connection over a local network.

If you ever have to swap devices and only have a choice for dongles, there are mobile broadband-compatible routers out there.
