Clear (4G WiMAX) Starting to Roll

Posted · 1 Comment

 Clearwire stepped into the 10M subscriber club recently by adding the final 900K subscribers this quarter. They now have around 9.1M wholesale subscribers (via mainly Sprint) and 1.3M retail subscribers so they have validated their partnership with Sprint. Another interesting tidbit is the subs have increased usage year over year by 22% so the whole flat rate thing may hit a wall. It’s a good thing they got motivated and started doing all those MIMO upgrades…In all actuality they have plenty of headroom since 802.16M/WiMAX is much more efficient than 3G either EVDO or HSxPA. Very good news from the guys in WA (and no not just the COSTCO guys…)
