What are alternatives to Clear WiMax?

Episode 1185 (1:09:27)

Richard from Commerce, CA

Richard bought a Clear internet box, but Sprint bought Clear and is shutting it down. Leo says that Clear was WiMax, which was a special Wi-Fi system that used microwave signals. Leo thought it would be a great option for rural areas, but Sprint's investment almost bankrupted them. It just didn't work unless you were really close to the tower. That's why Sprint dropped it and went with LTE. Leo suggests getting an LTE access point. He can get them with Ethernet. But he'll need to pay a monthly fee for it. Freedompop may be a good option for him. It's "free."
