As US carriers begin to peel away from unlimited bandwidth, those of us who don't appreciate limitations on our mobile browsing are being forced to look in odd places for coverage. Sprint's 4G network (which comes through Clearwire) may very well end up being the last unlimited plan on any US network.
SlashGear reports that Clearwire has addressed this issue in an email to one of their reporters.
“While large wireless carriers are moving away from unlimited data plans or signaling a desire to do so, Clearwire continues to offer unlimited data plans on a faster, open 4G network. You might ask why Clearwire can do this, while larger incumbents can’t. The answer is simple. We have an all-IP network and unrivaled spectrum position, providing unmatched capacity to deliver mobile data.”

Clearwire went on to say that the debate between WiMAX and LTE and HSPA+ is “misplaced”. Unlimited data plans are possible with a properly prepared network and a large enough “pipe”. For the time being, it sounds like Clearwire intends to continue to deliver unlimited service options. Thank God for that.
