    I'd like to know from those that currently use it, what speeds are you getting (do a speed test).

    Also how is it working with streaming services like Hulu and Netflix.

    Currently I'm only aware that 4G is only available in four markets. I know of two, Portland and Chicago. San Francisco and Sacramento markets are suppose to launch this year.

    Lots more than that....

    Here is their coverage link. I was just using it in Vegas.

    CLEAR | 4G WiMAX Internet Coverage Map with Service Area.

    I don't think I would trust this coverage map too much. Many of the areas showing 4G service does no have this service. Sacramento and San Fransisco areas are not up and running yet. I know they are still installing tower sites and getting very close.

    You are getting way better speeds than I have ever had. I have topped out just over 4, but average just over 3.

    Which hotspot did you get? The built in one?

    If that had only come out about 6 weeks earlier, that is what I would have purchased. I like my router ok, but my speed, when I have been in Chicago has not been anywhere close to that.
