Clearwire, which has launched wireless internet home service in a number of markets across the country, including Honolulu and Jacksonville, Florida, and is now adding Seattle to its portfolio.
The company, led by Craig McCaw, says this rollout is the largest geographic area and most populous area it is attempting to service. Seattle is one of the technology bellwethers of the nation, so this move could put Clearwire on the map or could set them back.
We've discussed Clearwire's use of WiMax technology here many times before, so there's no need to go over it again. The company says its service is easy to use, so that definitely is a selling point. It'll be interesting to see how the Clearwire service will do in this market.
