Hmmm strange maybe it's just my area though. I can get Clearwire, Sprint, or Comcast 4G here. I have not tried it, and am thinking they are all the same network as they all appeared around the same time. The Clearwire Sprint thing I know is the joined somehow, the Comcast wireless I am not sure is a part of it though. It did show up at roughly the same time though.
