Clearwire announced today that it has applied for a modest amount of broadband stimulus funds to bring new service to underserved areas within Detroit and Puerto Rico, two areas that were not otherwise part of Clearwire’s business plan. Clearwire also announced it plans to affiliate with a limited number of other grants submitted, as a spectrum and technology partner, covering additional territories in five states.

CLEAR uses a 4G technology that differs from Wi-Fi – called WiMAX, which provides service areas measured in miles, not feet. The Clearwire network utilizes an area-wide WiMAX radio system from Motorola.
