Unlimited day pass

i'm still using the wimax $5 day pass and recently during the activation process it states the tower i'm connected to will shutdown the wimax network in August and only LTE will available, is the $5 day pass currently available for LTE network or any plan for it in the future?

I've been advised all customers will be contacted by email within the next 5 business days with details applicable to their account. Lookout for that email.

Not liking this WiMAX shutdown. More people on LTE, the more congestion and it will be back to the speeds of the slow WiMAX days...

Anyway, maybe ozz or frosty can post a forum notice about the WiMAX shutdown?

The WiMAX and LTE networks use the same 2.3GHz slice of bandwidth. I would expect there is some inefficiency in running both side-by-side, so while there will be some impact during the changeover phase, eventually I'd think that it would be better just using the one technology. The bandwidth that WiMAX is currently consuming will get allocated to LTE.

Let's hope it is a positive impact.

I'm moving on to fixed line, there's less plans to choose from on your LTE than wimax.
