My comments.
First, any new isp or plan that is not too disadvantageous to the consumer is welcome. It gives you more choice.
Next, aside from the per day charging, it would be nice to have a per 15 min/30 min just like globe tatoo or smart bro prepaid.
Is the 3 mbps actually attainable?
And technically, only 802.16-M or wimax M is full 4g. This is probably wimax-E so its only 3.9g.
