Clearwire Announces WiMax Innovation Network in Silicon Valley
Sep 15, 2009, 7:06 AM by Eric M. Zeman
Today Clearwire announced the Clear 4G WiMax Innovation Network. This network covers about 20 square miles of Silicon Valley, including Santa Clara, Mountain View and parts of downtown Palo Alto -- it covers both Intel and Google's main campuses. This network is meant for developers and engineers in the area to use for testing applications and services that will use WiMax networks. Access to the network will be free to a limited number of qualified developers in the area. Clear doesn't plan a public launch of WiMax in the San Francisco Bay Area until some time in 2010. All the companies participating in the network, which include Bright House, Comcast, Sprint, Time Warner Cable, Clearwire, Cisco, Intel, and Google, will have download speeds of up to 10Mbps, with average download speeds of 3 to 6Mbps. Clearwire and the other organizers of the network hope this will spur innovation and speed up the development of WiMax-based applications and services.
