Clearwire Announces WiMax Innovation Network in Silicon Valley
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.
Sprint's 'Magic Box' Is An In-Home Small Cell to Help Improve Coverage
Sprint today announced the Magic Box, a tool Sprint hopes consumers and businesses will use to help it densify its LTE network. The Magic Box is similar to a signal booster in that owners place it in a window.
Sprint's WiMax Shutdown May Halt Service for Charities
Sprint plans to deactivate its WiMax network on Nov. 6, but some charities say the change will eliminate internet service for some 300,000 Americans altogether.
Sprint to Kill Off WiMax Once and for All On Nov. 6, 2015
Sprint today confirmed it will permanently shutter its WiMax network on or around November 6, 2015. The company had previously said it would operate the failed 4G network until "the end of 2015." Sprint said it has identified 6,000 "redundant sites that we expect to decommission and terminate the underlying leases," as part of the process, which will save the company some money.
Sprint Can Commence WiMax Shutdown
A Massachusetts court has given Sprint permission to turn off its WiMax network in stages over the next two months. Sprint will turn WiMax off in 16 cities, including New York, today, with 39 more to follow on February 29, and the remaining 25 cities on March 31.
It is the first 4G to be implemented and has driven the push for LTE sooner than planned. No one else was willing to move forward until the move of WiMAX became reality. The markets are growing and their footprint should be respected in the wireless industry for this accomplishment. For this, I shall stick with the underdog.
