We’re buzzing with excitement here on the CLEAR Blog about some serious coverage expansions we’ve rolled out recently. After completing an aggressive network build in 2010, Clearwire teamed up with partners Sprint and Comcast to make improvements to our capacity and coverage. Now more people in the Mid-Atlantic region can hop on the real 4G train.
We flipped the CLEAR 4G switch in Baltimore last June bringing the magic of mobile broadband to residents and visitors alike. Thanks to our talented team of engineers, a total of 1.75 million people now have access to our service! And because of this awesome expansion, other Maryland cities – including Arbutus, Arnold, Severn, South gate, Woodlawn and Perry Hill – are getting a taste of the 4G life. “This is great news for Sprint 4G customers in the Baltimore area, where we launched the first ever 4G network [XOHM] in 2008,” said Iyad Tarazi, Sprint Vice President of Development and Engineering.
An additional 288,067 people in the nation’s capitol have access to our super-fast take-it-with-you service. Approximately 2.81 million politicians, lobbyists, and citizens alike can now agree one thing: CLEAR 4G is the only way to go. We also expanded our network coverage to a few new cities including Manassas and Chantilly, Virginia.
As Mike Nash, our Mid-Atlantic regional general manager said, “We are committed to providing the best service experience in the area and anywhere within the Clearwire 4G network.” That means you get to enjoy the ease and mobility of 4G whenever you’re in our coverage area, whether it’s streaming Pandora while relaxing at the park or sharing twitpics with your friends while taking in a baseball game.
These two cities aren’t the only areas in our coverage map to get a boost in coverage. Previously we announced additional coverage in Boise, Sacramento, Los Angeles, and everyone’s favorite windy city, Chicago. We couldn’t be more pleased to be able to give consumers what they want and welcome more people into our 4G family.
