ClearWire offers WiMax plans for home starting at $39.99 a month for 1.5 Mbps download and $54.99 a month for 6 Mbps download. These are home services only, so you only get a modem, not a wireless hot spot. Since they were bought by Sprint, these plans don't seem to exist anymore but previous customers still get the service.

So my question is, how do their WiMax plans compete with such low speeds when other ISPs like AT&T and Comcast exist? These plans are for Chicago.

Dunno where you live but I'd kill for 6 Mbps at that price. I'm paying that much and only getting 3.8.

I actually live in the Chicago area. Those plans don't seem to make sense for a crowded metropolitan area like this one.

Casual users who don't use much bandwidth and have never thought to switch carriers.

Them causal users must be damn lazy, because just about everyone knows who AT&T and Comcast are.
