We're not entirely sure if this is the mythical "quadruple play" bundle that cable companies had in mind, but whatever the case, it works for Comcast. With mobile broadband usage on the rise and pay-TV seeming less and less potent with the introduction of Hulu and the like, Comcast is making sure to grasp as many revenue generating businesses as it can. Starting this week in Portland, Oregon, Comcast will kick off its High-Speed 2go service, a data-only 4G service that will be bundled with its at-home Internet, phone and television products. In other words, Comcast is hoping to become a one-stop shop for in-home TV, in-home phone, in-home Internet and on-the-go Internet. It has yet to add voice... Read more...
Clearwire and Cisco have formed an alliance to expand WiMAX services throughout the U.S. and offer additional devices that will work with the WiMAX standard. Under the terms of the partnership, Cisco will provide the network backbone for Clearwire’s national WiMAX network. In addition, Cisco will build new mobile devices that are compatible with Clearwire’s Clear 4G mobile WiMAX service. As you know, WiMAX provides wireless broadband Internet at speeds much faster than today’s 3G networks. Sprint and Clearwire combined their WiMAX assets in November; the new company is called Clearwire. Sprint is the majority owner of Clearwire with 51%. Clearwire currently offers WiMAX services in Baltimore... Read more...
WiMAX has definitely had a difficult time taking off here in the US, but with Sprint hoping to expand the service to around a dozen major metropolitan areas before the dawn of 2011, there's still hope for a late surge in adoption. And honestly, it's devices like this that'll make it happen. Clearwire has just announced an interesting new product that could eventually make you think twice about ditching your current ISP and going strictly WiMAX: the CLEAR Spot. Put simply, this is a portable WiMAX modem with built-in Wi-Fi capability, meaning that it can deliver WiMAX signals to multiple Wi-Fi-enabled products.Think of it this way -- you fire up the CLEAR Spot and secure a blazing fast...

Intel seemed pretty jovial when it locked itself into a WiMAX-based future with a smattering of partners last year, and despite everything that has happened in the industry (and the economy) since, the company is still pretty elated about the whole deal. Publicly, at least. After talking up its 32 nanometer processing technology this week, the company also fielded some questions in relation to its ties to Clearwire. As you may or may not know, Clearwire -- a WiMAX Internet provider -- is only active in Portland, Oregon and Baltimore, Maryland at the moment, and it doesn't take a financial expert to realize that two metropolitan areas isn't enough to prop up an entire ISP. On top of that, LTE... Read more...
Representatives of Clearwire and Sprint Nextel, the third largest mobile carrier in the U.S., have announced a cooperative effort to convene a national WiMax wireless broadband network, which is the upcoming 4G technology standard. WiMax mobile technology has been developed to work over 5 times faster than contemporary 3rd generation wireless networks, and at a lower cost. Moreover, Intel and other big-name IT and telecommunications companies seem to see a bright future for WiMax, for they believe that WiMax chips will eventually be incorporated into various devices including laptops. “The partnership will enable the two companies to accelerate their existing WiMax network plans and make more...
