Clearwire Inks Wholesale Deal with Earthlink
Clearwire today announced that it has signed a wholesale agreement with Earthlink, which is now able to resell Clearwire's broadband services. Earthlink expects to target in-home broadband users first, but will eventually expand its offering to mobile broadband products and devices, such as laptop dongles. Earthlink's customers will be able to purchase Clearwire-powered service starting in early 2013. The companies will first sell WiMax-based equipment, but will transition to LTE as Clearwire gets its LTE network up and running.
