The Sidecut Reports Clearwire’s Spectrum: The 4G Advantage takes a deep-dive look into the wireless spectrum holdings of the provider of the nation’s nascent WiMAX network, examining its historical roots, how Clearwire came to control the spectrum, and how its depth and breadth gives Clearwire a U.S. market advantage in the race to build 4G wireless networks.
Prepared in an easy-to-read style with deep background material for those who may not have understood WiMAX before, the report provides a thorough explanation of the need for licensed wireless spectrum, how Clearwire came to control the spectrum, and how controlling the largest swath of wireless real estate gives Clearwire a leg up over its 4G market competitors.
In the new report you will learn:
– Why the exploding use of mobile Internet services is causing a “spectrum crisis” for other wireless providers, but not for Clearwire
– The historical background of the 2.5 GHz band, and how it changed from being designated for educational wireless cable TV into a band that could be used for two-way wireless communications
– How some savvy business decisions, along with unexpected market actions, led to Clearwire controlling more spectrum than any other wireless provider, including Verizon and AT&T
– How having control of such a wide swath of licensed airwaves gives Clearwire the ability to build and run its networks more cheaply and efficiently than providers with less spectrum
