Clearwire Communications has announced the expansion of its sales operations for CLEAR’s mobile Internet service throughout Central Pennsylvania including Harrisburg, Reading, Lancaster and York. The company also named Curtis Heffelfinger as general manager for this area.?
The CLEAR customer experience is similar to that provided by WiFi, but without the short-range limitations of a traditional Internet hotspot. CLEAR uses a wireless 4G technology called WiMAX, which provides service areas measured in miles, not feet. CLEAR gives users average mobile download speeds of 3 to 6 mbps with bursts over 10 mbps.
CLEAR’s 4G network will expand to numerous markets around the country, and services will be offered by different service providers depending on the market. Some of the planned 4G markets in 2010 include New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Miami, Denver, Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Salt Lake City, St. Louis, Pittsburg and Kansas City.
