Wouldn’t it be nice to surf the net on your laptop from home and any where you roam without the exuberant fees and data caps? Well, now you can thanks to Clear.

They’re now selling a 4G modem/router for the home that connects to their WiMax network for $120.  Monthly service plans start at $35 and the modem provides the latest in WiFi connectivity (802.11N) as well as Ethernet ports for any boxes that aren’t wireless.

As with all their data plans you’ll receive unlimited usage.  Opt for the “Base Home” $35/month plan and you’ll be limited to a download speed of 1.5mbps and an upload speed of 500kbps.  Alternatively, you could spend an extra $10 to remove the bandwidth cap, or if you spring for the $60/month plan, “Take Two: Home + On-The-Go”, you’ll receive no download cap, a 1mbps upload limit and service any where you go with your laptop. 

We’re not sure what the actual download speeds of Clear’s network are today, but they claim a 3 to 6mbps average with a burst speed of 10mpbs.  That’s on par with my cable provider’s (Time Warner) speeds, which I pay $35/month for.

Make sure you checkout the coverage map and other data options.
