Clearwire to expand WiMax footprint

Idaho, Washington and eight new markets throughout Texas

By CBR Staff Writer

Clearwire Communications is set to launch its CLEAR 4G service in ten new markets beginning September 1, 2009.

Currently, the company has WiMax networks in four markets. The US-based communications company will launch its 4G services in Idaho, Washington and eight markets throughout Texas, including: Abilene, Amarillo, Corpus Christi, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, Killeen/Temple, Waco and Wichita Falls.

In addition to the markets announced, consumers and businesses can also purchase the company’s 4G services online and at various retail locations in Atlanta, Baltimore, Las Vegas, and Portland, Oregon.

The company claims that CLEAR offers mobile internet experience on par with speeds experienced on wired connections, like DSL. The CLEAR customer experience is similar to that provided by Wi-Fi, but without the short range limitations of a traditional hot spot.
