BELLEVUE, Wash., Nov. 12, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Whether someone has been naughty or nice this year, they'd be remiss if they didn't add a CLEAR 4G device to their holiday wish list. CLEAR 4G devices and internet service are sweeter than icing on a gingerbread cookie and sure to be a winner, unlike grandma's fruitcake.

"According to an October 1, 2012 Pew research study, half of all U.S. adults have mobile connections to the internet," said Dow Draper, senior vice president and general manager of retail at Clearwire. "With the explosive growth and demand for mobile broadband internet speed, capacity and spectrum, CLEAR 4G delivers amazing results that are setting the pace for consumers and businesses across the country."
Whether a person is stuck at the airport waiting for a flight, or driving over the river and through the woods, a device that offers mobile broadband service could make the trip home much more enjoyable. IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) even identified 'ubiquitous, nonstop connectivity' to be the number one trend after this year's Consumer and Electronics show in Las Vegas. Consumers should also consider buying their own CLEAR 4G device before the holiday rush, so they can avoid the hordes of shoppers and shop online (instead of waiting in line).
There are several ways to connect to CLEAR 4G service – via a mobile hotspot, stick, or home modem.
