Clearwire Ships Clear 4G Home Modem With Wi-Fi Router

Did you know that Clearwire provides internet services for the home? They do. Aside from offering mobile 4G access, the WiMAX company also delivers Internet service to homes, and there's a new modem out for those who are considering the service. It's called the Clear Modem with Wi-Fi, and basically, it's a Clearwire 4G modem + WLAN router built into one single unit.

Buying this prevents users from having to buy a 4G modem for their home as well as separate router to send signals out over Wi-Fi. This one box does it all. It's a pretty slim one too, so it shouldn't be too worrisome to install. The WLAN portion supports 802.11b/g/n and functions on Windows Vista 32/64, Windows 7 32/64 and Mac OS8 or higher. It's available now from  and from CLEAR retail stores and authorized dealers for $120 for an outright purchase, or $7/month for a lease.
