Clearwire has said it plans to launch WiMAX networks in Los Angeles and Miami among at least 13 other markets this year.
Clearwire had previously said that new markets scheduled to launch in 2010 would include New York City, Houston, Boston, Washington, D.C., Kansas City, Denver, Minneapolis and the San Francisco Bay Area. In addition, WiMAX is now set to be rolled out to L.A., Miami, St. Louis, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City, the company said. ‘Across our 4G markets today, we are experiencing data usage levels that could shake the rest of the wireless industry to its core,’ Clearwire CEO Bill Morrow said in a statement. ‘On average, our mobile 4G customers are using more than 7GB of data per month, and we are very pleased about the implications.’

Clearwire currently operates WiMAX networks in 27 US markets and expects to cover up to 120 million people by the end of 2010. The service delivers average mobile download speeds of between 3Mbps and 6Mbps with bursts of more than 10Mbps. Clearwire is majority owned by Sprint Nextel, with other shareholders including Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Intel and Google. Clearwire is responsible for building the 4G network and selling services under its Clear brand. Sprint, Time Warner Cable and Comcast resell the service in Clearwire’s markets under their own brands.
