Clearwire explains WiMAX 4G for the US, then demo it

Offering next-gen mobile broadband to over 100 mil

| Connectivity & Communications News | Posted: Jan 7, 2010 8:15 pm

CES 2010 - Finishing up our Digital Experience coverage from CES in Las Vegas we caught up with Clearwire who is one of the first companies to implement WiMAX 4G next generation mobile broadband into the US market.

 

By the end of 2010, Clear intends on offering up its affordable wireless data plans to one third of the American public, with the company currently offering its services in 27 major cities around the country.

 

In the video below, the rep was kind enough to give us a really good run down on the differences between 3G and 4G, the types of mobile devices and routers folks will use with its service and the accompanying usage scenarios. If you are new to the technology and want to learn about it in a short time, this is a must-see.

 

 

Uploading HD video content in hotel suite now that only offers 802.11g and no LAN access, I'm lucky to hit 100 kilobytes per second and it's more like half that. I should go back and ask them to give me a plan for while I'm in town for CES. Clear, if you are reading this - reach out!
