The Calyx Institute now has access to the 4G / LTE data network and you can get a full year of wireless data - 30GB+ per month for FREE with membership * !!

For legal reasons, we can't call it unlimited data service, but..... We are supposed to refer to it as 30 GB+.. however when you pass the 30GB mark during the month, the Internet service does not slow down (throttle), or cut you off, and there are NO overage charges.

The plan only works in the USA in Sprint's 4G/LTE service area (see instructions to check the map below). It does not include off-network roaming, and it is subject to any standard network management that Sprint may apply to commercial broadband data-only account users.

Do the math yourself. Find out what a 30GB/month mobile data service plan normally costs (and that plan will shut off after 30GB!) and you will see what an amazing value this is.

Now, for the first time in over eleven years - more than a quarter of my life - I can finally speak freely about my experience being conscripted into the FBI’s surveillance machine.

You may have seen coverage of the revelations in the news last week:

Shutdown of Wimax Network

We are sad to announce that due to circumstances beyond our control, the Wimax network we have been offering to our members is shutting down around the first week of November. This means that if you are using network services you received from your Calyx membership that you will lose connectivity at that time.

The back story is that we were getting the access through a company called Clear, and that company was bought by Sprint who then made a decision to use the radio frequency from the Wimax network for its 4G/LTE data service.

However, Sprint has been unable to transition our user base to the 4G/LTE network quickly enough to avoid an interruption in service.

Therefore if you want to remain online, you need to find other arrangements for your Internet connectivity.

We hope to be able to begin delivering 4G/LTE data service to our members as a membership benefit at some time in the future though we can't say exactly when that will happen or exactly...view
