Clearwire announces a ten-city simultaneous WiMAX launch
On September first, Clearwire Communications plans to launch new WiMax networks in ten markets simultaneously. These will include Boise, Idaho, Bellingham, Washington, and eight markets in Texas: Abilene, Amarillo, Corpus Christi, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, Killeen/Temple, Waco, and Wichita Falls.
This will be the first time that Clearwire celebrates launches in more than a single market at a time, and customers in these markets can activate service immediately through Clear.com. Resellers such as Sprint, Comcast, or Time Warner, however, have not yet been announced for these markets.
Clear is still expected to launch WiMAX networks in Chicago, Charlotte, Dallas/Fort Worth, Honolulu, Philadelphia, and Seattle before the end of the year.
