Clearwire Introduces CLEAR 4G Mobile Broadband Wireless Internet Service to 25 Markets in the United States

10/8/09 - Clearwire Corporation (NASDAQ: CLWR) announced that it has officially rolled out plans to introduce CLEAR's super fast mobile broadband wireless Internet service to more than 25 markets covering over 30 million people in places such as: Atlanta and Milledgeville, GA; Baltimore; Boise; Chicago; Las Vegas; Philadelphia; Charlotte, Raleigh, and Greensboro, NC; Honolulu and Maui, HI; Seattle and Bellingham, WA; Portland, OR; and Dallas/Ft. Worth, San Antonio, Austin, Abilene, Amarillo, Corpus Christi, Killeen/Temple, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, Waco and Wichita Falls, TX.

Now, consumers and businesses can access the Internet wirelessly, at true broadband speeds at home, in the office, and on the go anywhere in the CLEAR coverage area.

"CLEAR is excited to bring to residents and the students at Georgia College & State University the super fast mobile Internet experience they're used to having at home or the office, anywhere around town or on the go," said Marc Brachman, General Manager, Atlanta. "We're pleased to provide this community a valuable new category of Internet service designed to make people's lives more enjoyable and more productive, wherever they happen to be in our coverage area."

The 4G customer experience is similar to that provided by Wi-Fi, but without the short range limitations of a traditional Internet hot spot. The companies are all using a wireless 4G technology that differs from Wi-Fi called WiMAX, which provides service areas measured in miles, not feet. Further, CLEAR gives you average mobile download speeds of 3 to 6 mbps with bursts over 10 mbps.*

As the Internet integrates deeper into daily life, the opportunities to stay connected and be productive are enhanced by CLEAR in numerous ways:

  • A busy parent who wants full Internet connectivity for kids studying or playing games in the back of the family minivan;
  • A college student or retiree looking for one affordable Internet service provider to meet their needs at home, on campus and on-the-go;
  • A mobile professional who is unsatisfied with the speeds and limitations of 3G modem cards or the need to seek out Wi-Fi hotspots;
  • A commuter interested in working or accessing entertainment sites like Hulu or Pandora on the way home.

For these and many other customers, CLEAR's simple and innovative pricing provides ultimate flexibility. CLEAR's mobile and residential plans can be purchased by the day or by the month, and with several no service contract options available. Home Internet service plans start at $25 per month, while mobile Internet plans start at $35 per month, or customers can purchase a convenient day pass for $10.

Additional savings are available for customers by purchasing a combination of services that could include home-and-mobile or mobile-and-mobile Internet plans starting at $50 for both, or by signing up for a two-year service agreement. The dual-mode 4G/3G plan is available for just $70 per month with a two-year service agreement. Customers can find full details about pricing options, business plans and purchase the service online at www.clear.com, or by visiting other authorized CLEAR dealers.

CLEAR offers several simple choices for broadband connectivity.

  1. Clear USB Modem and Clear 4G+ Mobile: Mobile users simply plug-in CLEAR's compact, mobile WiMAX-enabled USB modem into their laptop to get online. The USB modem, from Motorola, is available for only $49.99 for a limited time or leased for just $4.99 per month. Customers can purchase the modem from a store or online. Customers who travel across the U.S. may purchase the Clear 4G+ mobile USB, a dual-mode (4G/3G) modem from CLEAR. The dual-mode capabilities give the truly mobile user access to nationwide 3G network service whenever the Clear 4G service is not available. The 4G+ mobile USB is available to lease for only $5.99 per month.
  2. Residential data & voice services: For residential service, CLEAR offers customers a wireless high-speed modem, about the size of a small book. Customers simply plug the modem into a power outlet anywhere in their home or office and connect the modem to their PC or wireless router. This enables consumers and businesses to install high-speed Internet service without the need to schedule an appointment, drill holes in their walls, or otherwise disrupt their day. The Clear Modem, a residential modem from Motorola, can be purchased for $69.99 for a limited time or leased for just $4.99 monthly. Residential customers can also add in-home voice service with purchase of the Clear Voice Adapter for $15, and receive unlimited local and long distance service for just $25 per month.
  3. Clear Spot: With the Clear Spot, any existing, off-the-shelf Wi-Fi device (compatible with 802.11b/g) can connect to CLEAR's mobile WiMAX network. The Clear Spot creates a personal Wi-Fi hotspot that travels with consumers anywhere they happen to be within CLEAR's mobile WiMAX service area. This $139.99 device is a portable, battery-powered router that seamlessly connects up to eight standard Wi-Fi-enabled devices (computers, mobile phones, portable gaming, consoles, cameras, etc.) to the Internet via a Clear USB modem to access CLEAR's mobile WiMAX network. The Clear Spot is compatible with both the Clear 4G and Clear 4G+ mobile USB dual-mode service options.
  4. Intel Embedded WiMAX Laptops: Numerous CLEAR-compatible embedded WiMAX laptops based on Intel® Centrino® 2 processor technology are now available directly from their manufacturers and through other channels. From Dell, these include the Studio 17, Studio XPS 16, Latitude E4300, Latitude E6400, Latitude E6400 ATG, Latitude E6500, Precision M2400, Precision M4400 and Vostro 1220. From Fujitsu, this includes the LifeBook P8020. WiMAX-ready laptops from Lenovo include the ThinkPad line: SL500, X200, X200s, X200 Tablet, X301, T400, T500, W500, W700. From Samsung, this includes the X460 notebook as well as the NC10, the first WiMAX-enabled netbook based on the Intel® Atom™ processor, available in the U.S.
  5. Samsung Mondi: The Samsung Mondi is a mobile, WiMAX-enabled handheld device that combines the abilities of a PC with the size and portability of a phone.

Clearwire Communications, LLC, an operating subsidiary of Clearwire Corporation (NASDAQ: CLWR), offers a robust suite of advanced high-speed Internet services to consumers and businesses. As part of a multi-year network build-out plan, Clearwire's 4G service, called CLEAR™, will be available in major metropolitan areas across the U.S., and bring together an unprecedented combination of speed and mobility. Clearwire's open all-IP network, combined with significant spectrum holdings, provides unmatched network capacity to deliver next-generation broadband access. Strategic investors include Intel Capital, Comcast, Sprint, Google, Time Warner Cable, and Bright House Networks. Clearwire currently provides 4G service, utilizing WiMAX technology, in sixteen markets and provides pre-WiMAX communications services in 40 markets across the U.S. and Europe.
