Comcast has indicated that it will resell Wimax from Clearwire, likely as part of a quad-play bundle, in some markets. Comcast will buy Wimax at wholesale and then offer it along with television, fixed broadband Internet, and telephone services. Comcast invested $1 billion in Clearwire. Comcast did not indicate when it will begin selling the Wimax, nor in what markets or at what price.

This is not bad.

Comcast must see a good amount of inquiries and interest in WiMax to reinvest. We WiMax advocates should hope for a good return.
Well I didn't know that Wimax was originally developed as a upgrade to broadband WIFI. I guess it worked so well for wireless carriers that they molded it into the "4G" that its being used for now. I also didn't know that there's about 69 million user...

It basically means that Comcast is going to buy an amount of clearwire's WiMax services, then resell to their own subscribers under the Comcast name.
