Clearwire uses a state-of-the-art wireless modem that can be plugged into a desktop computer, laptop, local network or vehicle. It works by transmitting signals to and from nearby cellular towers instead of using a traditional phone or cable lines.
That means you have the flexibility to set up the modem anywhere in your home or office. Upstairs or downstairs, inside or outside. Plus, your Clearwire is always on and always secure. Installation is simple. Just plug it in and you will be surfing the internet within minutes. Unlike DSL, cable and other types of wireless internet requiring additional equipment and and installation, Clearwire is simple, reliable and secure.
We’re excited about providing the area residents and small business owners reliable, wireless broadband-speed Internet access with flexibility they’ve never had before. Clearwire eliminates the limitations of traditional broadband services, offering a more consumer-friendly Internet experience.
Clearwire is led by Craig McCaw, one of the early pioneers in providing cellular phone service in the United States in the early 1980s. His company, McCaw Cellular, grew to be the largest U.S. cellular service provider and was later acquired by AT&T.
Clearwire drew national attention in the summer of 2004 when it announced it would deploy wireless broadband technology in select markets across the country. Since then, Clearwire has launched service in Jacksonville and Daytona Beach, Fla.; Abilene, Midland, Odessa, Killeen and Waco, Texas; St. Cloud and Duluth, Minn.; Eau Claire, Wis.; Medford, Eugene and Roseburg, Ore.; Modesto, Stockton, Visalia and Merced, Calif.; Kennewick and Bellingham, Wash.; and 15 Central Minnesota communities. Take a look at the Clearwire News Releases for more details on some of the more recent launches!
Clearwire is a provider of reliable, wireless, high-speed broadband Internet service to consumers and small businesses. Clearwire is utilizing next-generation, non-line-of-sight wireless technology (called Wi-Max), developed by its subsidiary company NextNet Wireless, to connect customers to the Internet using radio spectrum, thus eliminating the confines of traditional cable or phone wiring. The tower transmits radio signals from a base site to a small, wireless modem the size of a paperback book, which easily connects a user’s computer to the Internet.

Q: "How secure is Clearwire? Is it more secure than Wi-Fi?"
A: Clearwire is very secure. It's more secure than Wi-Fi because it uses OFDM transmission protocol (featuring a design standard that includes secure wireless data transmission) and licensed 2.5GHz frequencies. Wi-Fi operates on unlicensed 2.4GHz frequencies, making it vulnerable to scanning and packet interception.
It's time to cut the cord. With Clearwire® you'll get true high-speed internet of up to 1.5M at a great low price.
