Hey guys, would you consider companies like Clear (http://www.clear.com/) which provides 4G internet through cellular towers as a good alternative to Comcast or AT&T as an home Internet provider?
I understand area does matter most but this is specifically targeted for those who live in an area with a strong coverage area that Clear or similar companies provide.
I am one that watches Netflix most of my time, uploads YouTube videos, uses social networking and social media and Google+ Hangouts. Would you recommend it for geeks like us? How about the average user at home?

The thing about 4G internet is that there is always a cap. No matter what they say about unlimited internet, there is a cap. Netflix on a WiMAX data network would probably set Clear's customer service off. I'd rather get the traditional Cable/FiOS connection because that would be stable and more reliable. Clear is only for places with a strong signal as you said. In New York (where I live) Sprint's WiMAX is very strong, so I'd get a strong signal (outside). If I were in Vegas, I'd get no signal since their coverage map doesn't cover it. I did use my T-Mobile connection before as my modem, and it was okay until they called me and saw that my usage ran all the way up from my usual 150MB a month to a mindblowing 10GB. So take cellular internet with a grain of salt.
