WiMAX is coming sooner than many people have expected. Clearwire Communications today announced the official launch day of CLEAR 4G service in Boise, Idaho; Bellingham, Wash.; and eight markets throughout Texas, including: Abilene, Amarillo, Corpus Christi, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, Killeen/Temple, Waco and Wichita Falls will occur on September 1, 2009.
"CLEAR offers the first super fast mobile Internet service that works as fast on the go as it does at home. Customers in these new markets interested in experiencing CLEAR today can activate service now via clear.com." According Clearwire. The company has infrastructure already in place in the cities slated to launch 4G in September.
Some of the additional markets planned to launch in 2009 include Chicago, Charlotte, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Honolulu, Philadelphia and Seattle. In 2010, Clearwire plans to launch 4G service in New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., Houston and the San Francisco Bay Area among others.
Clearwire has launched mobile 4G WiMAX in Atlanta, Baltimore, Las Vegas and Portland, Oregon. The company has plans to launch its mobile WiMAX service in over 80 markets covering 120 milliion people next year.
"The CLEAR customer experience is similar to that provided by Wi-Fi, but without the short range limitations of a traditional hot spot. CLEAR uses a 4G technology that differs from Wi-Fi called WiMAX, which provides service areas measured in miles, not feet." Said the company.
