Looks like the Clearwire folks will officially take the wraps off their Portland, Ore., mobile WiMax network on Jan. 6, according to the invite we just got from Clearwire and Intel. Clearwire, which had reportedly already been taking consumer signups for the network, looks like it isn’t going to waste time in 2009 launching its new form of wireless broadband.
And that’s a good thing for Clearwire and its investors, since it’s clear (hah) that the big telcos like AT&T and Verizon will be racheting up the marketing pressure, trying to convince customers to wait for the promised land of LTE.
More launch details as we learn more. In the meantime you can catch up on WiMax specifics by downloading our Consumer Guide to WiMax for no charge at all.
