Clear 4G. I need help !

by AndiiBoii007 / February 14, 2013 10:07 PM PST


I have a lot of knowledge when it comes to computer repair, build , software , etc. But, now my problem is with my internet provider which is Clear 4G. I believe it runs through Sprint. Which, I do have a cellphone service with Sprint. I recently moved to my new apt. And, here the signal is really REALLY really weak. Clear 4G seems to be a real ripoff,why? Well, I am paying $49.99 monthly. But with no contract.
Now, the speeds with Clear are
DL: 2mb's-3mb's
UL: 1mb
Really slow. I can't even stream videos in HQ. Now, I saw a video about a product that helps to boost/expands your wi-fi signal.

I am willing to pay for

The big question here is:
Since, Clear is a wireless internet provider and not a cable-wired internet provider will it help/work to boost the signal if I use the 'Powerline products'?

Note: I use my internet for:
- movies, videos, music (ps3, xbox360, cellphone and PC)
- online gaming (ps3, xbox360 and PC)

- Thank you,

clear is the worst company in the world

Want to talk to twenty slaves who don't know anything, and whom you cannot understand? Well, you can't do better than Clear Wireless. Clear stole four hundred dollars from us. Took the money, never provided one gram of service or product. company that is only good for treating American customers like dirt, and exclusively employing terrified slaves on the other side of the world. I repeat: Clear stole four hundred dollars from us.
