Since the beginning of cell phones there has always been a pay-as-you-go system in place. Hotels and coffee shops have done it with wireless, but there has not been an in-home device set up for pay-as-you-go--which only seems natural to have more control of your spending in these economic times.
Clearwire announced a new pay-as-you-go brand for its 4G wireless, Rover Puck. The Rover Puck offers Wi-Fi connectivity for up to eight users. Targeting college students and recent grads the service does not require a contract and provides customers with payment options--daily, weekly, monthly.
This seems like the perfect device for kids on the move. Twenty-somethings are traveling and moving around more than ever. The commitment it takes to set up a home wireless service, usually with cable, can become costly and hard to renege on. Clearwire has figured out a very marketable way to sell their product.
As a twenty-something on a budget and unsettled the Rover Puck sounds like the perfect device that provides everything.
