To rollout 4G WiMax across Ireland as an alternative access to the existing Ericom network

By CBR Staff Writer

Imagine Communications has acquired Clearwire’s Irish operations to rollout 4G WiMax across Ireland as an alternative access to the existing Ericom network.

The company said that Clearwire has a significant telecoms infrastructure in Ireland which will now be used by Imagine.

Mr Brian Donohoe, MD of Imagine Communications, said: "This is a very significant and strategic deal for us as Clearwire is one of the world’s leading 4G operators."

"Key network and operational assets, as well as a talented technical team, will serve as a solid launch pad for expanding service and making 4G mobile broadband a reality across Ireland."

Using Clearwire’s WiMax technology, Imagine is expected to deliver speeds of 100mbits to consumers and businesses in the near future. In Ireland Imagine provides fixed voice, broadband, IP and ISP services.
