Clearwire Says Pay-As-You-Go Pricing On the Way
Based on a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Clearwire plans to introduce new, pay-as-you-go WiMax service in the near future. The company, which called for a press conference on Monday, August 30, is building out a WiMax network in cooperation with Sprint. Sprint and Clearwire's WiMax covers 49 markets in the U.S., but still only a handful of devices — including just two phones — can access the network. The addition of a pay-as-you-go service model could help Clearwire and Sprint sign up new customers if the pricing is competitive enough. Additional details will become available during the press conference.
