Yes you heard me correctly 100 Terabytes if you think that is crazy wait till we ad some more devices to the mix, never in my wildest dreams would I have thought we would move that much video traffic in a month. Tonight, I introduce a second stream, we are on both Ustream.tv and Justin.TV see links below, will work the bugs out over next few shows.

Ok Headed for Home Saturday morning. We are having a meetup tonight at Dinosaur BBQ in downtown Rochester all welcome i’m buying dinner. I have had a lovely time here in up state NY and look forward to coming back. Was much more than I anticipated. Look forward to being home and back in the Studio for a while. Join me live from Honolulu on Monday evening.. Big thank you to all the new and contributing insiders.
Clear and their Wimax connectivity was a life saver at CES 2010. The service stayed online and maintained consistent upload and download speeds throughout the week. The entire TechPodcasts.com crew was in my Suite sharing the connection without issue. I cannot say the same for Sprint during the week which was down 3-4 nights during the show. I have been using Clear Wimax in Hawaii and so far I have not had any issue with service in fact have been more pleased as we are farther into our roll-out.

I have been a Clearwire / Clear customer for 2+ years. Overall the service has been pretty bad over the past 2 years and we only used the service for a backup connection. On the old Clearwire 1st gen system we saw average Speed Test in the 1500 kbps down 350 kbps up and the connection was really bad.
Last week I decided to give Clear one more shot. Essentially I decided to do a head to head test with Hawaiian Telecom DSL and the new Clear WiMax. Let me show you the new Hawaii Clear WiMax speed test.
In all honesty with all the hype I was expecting a whole heck of a lot more speed. The Upload speed is horrible as you can see. I was getting that upload speed with Sprint EVDO 3G.
My clear modem has a strong signal all bars are lite so it is not a matter of signal strength. The modem sits in a window facing the tower so I know we are getting a good signal. But the problems with clear service continues.
In streaming video off of YouTube, Ustream it is choppy the video stop and sputters. I find email times out and overall the service quality while the speed is faster is about the same.
The DSL modem that I got from Hawaiian Telecom has none of these issues. I am a long way from the switch and maintain a steady 3000 kbps down and 1000 kbps up and the video on YouTube and Ustream does not sputter and email has been solid.
Unless someone at Clear Hawaii can explain to me why their service is still crap I am cancelling my Clear WiMax service and do not recommend it at this time to any Hawaii customer. Call Road Runner or Hawaiian Telecom and you will get a connection that is wired and works.
Ok meetup on Wednesday will be at 6:30pm at On the Border, in Milpitas (Hwy 880 and Hwy 237) see map link below all are welcome to attend. Please RSVP ASAP to email@example.com Bandwidth is fantastic here at the Hilton in San Jose at the convention center 5 stars some other hotels could take some lessons from these folks.

Hey folks you are going to get a laugh at the beginning of the show first time, I have done that. Also we need your reviews via iTunes or other sites you get the show from. Lot’s of tech as usual and a bit of soap box time throughout the podcast.
Have solved my FF crashing issue and we have show notes once again. My winning podcasters check in and are ready to roll. Lots of tech news tonight but I take a little time at the beginning of the podcast to talk about Q3 Advertising and how things are going on that front.
