High-speed 4G mobile internet from both Sprint and Clear has been flipped on in Minneapolis-St. Paul and Pittsburgh. Sprint is a majority shareholder in Clear, but the two companies offer different service options.

In the Minneapolis area, for instance, Clear offers a $45-per-month home internet plan that includes 6 Mbps download speeds and 1 Mbps upload speeds. You can also get it with a portable 4G hotspot, which would allow you to connect at home and then take it on the road if needed.

Sprint’s portable 4G hotspot service runs $60 per month, with "peak download speeds of over 10 Mbps and average download speeds of 3-6 Mbps," and includes nationwide 3G coverage as well.
