Clearwire: Next Stop, Portland 2009.


While Clearwire still isn’t revealing the details of its WiMAX rollout plan, reports Telephony Magazine, CEO of New Clearwire, Ben Wolff, said that will come after the Sprint deal closes. That will probably be after the stockholder meeting on November 20th.
Clearwire’s trial in Portland—its first planned market launch—is now hosting 200 friendly users. In December, Clearwire will begin to allow commercial customers on the network, but unlike Sprint, Clearwire won’t be launching any commercial networks this year.

Portland will commercially launch in the beginning of 2009, followed by Las Vegas, Atlanta and Grand Rapids, Mich., according to Telephony. Sprint has already launched Xohm commercially in Baltimore and has promised to bring Washington, D.C., and Chicago online by the end of the year.
