NYC’s WiMAX goes live Nov 1; LA on Dec 1 and San Francisco by end of 2010

Clearwire and Sprint have announced that, as of November 1st 2010, New York City will be bathed in beautiful WiMAX, with Los Angeles following on come December 1st and San Francisco in late December.  The move will see the companies partner with other firms in each location: Time Warner Cable in NYC, and Comcast in San Francisco.

Each will have their own branding and market offering, though we can't imagine there'll be much competition on price at first.  Of course, that will likely all change when Verizon turn on their LTE networks, also promised for the end of this year.

Clearwire, Sprint and Time Warner Cable to Launch 4G in New York City
4G Mobile Broadband Coming to New York City on November 1
Clearwire to Offer CLEAR(R)
Sprint to Offer Sprint 4G
Time Warner Cable to Offer Time Warner Cable Mobile Internet
KIRKLAND, Wash. & OVERLAND PARK, Kan. & NEW YORK, Oct 18, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) --

Clearwire Corporation (NASDAQ: CLWR), Sprint (NYSE: S) and Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) today announced plans to launch their respective 4G mobile internet services in New York later this year. Each of the companies will offer 4G services under their own 4G brand.

Clearwire, Sprint and Time Warner Cable will each launch commercial 4G service in New York City on November 1, with official launch events and retail store openings to follow in each market. Consumers and businesses should expect to see additional network expansions throughout New York City, along with a wide-range of independent marketing and advertising initiatives.

The 4G customer experience from Clearwire, Sprint, and Time Warner Cable is similar to Wi-Fi but without the short-range limitations. The network uses wireless 4G technology that differs from Wi-Fi because it provides service areas measured in miles, not feet. Outside the 4G service area, dual-mode 4G/3G modems keep users continually connected by leveraging Sprint's 3G data network.

Customers in the New York City area will now be able to increase their mobility and productivity in many ways: from instantly downloading large files to get work done on the run, to browsing the web just like at home from across the city, or watching online videos and movies nearly anywhere around town.

Subscribers will also be able to purchase a wide range of 4G devices, including: compact USB modems, numerous Intel(R) embedded WiMAX laptops and netbooks, portable Wi-Fi/4G hotspots, and other wireless devices, all aimed at making lives in 4G cities more mobile and efficient.

CLEAR

Clearwire's 4G service, CLEAR(R), is take-it-with-you internet service for businesses and consumers. Customers will be able to purchase service online at www.clear.com, followed by retail store and dealer openings. Today, in advance of Clearwire's commercial 4G launch in New York, dual-mode 3G/4G service is now available to consumers in select areas. This targeted pre-launch promotion provides early adopters with broad 3G coverage and limited 4G coverage while final work on Clearwire's 4G network is completed. 4G-only mobile services are not yet being offered as part of this pre-launch promotion.
