Clearwire Responds to Verizon’s 4G Announcements

You knew it wouldn’t be long before the other players started chipping away at Verizon’s 4G news.  Only hours after the announcement, Clearwire is among the first to come out publicly and take on Big Red’s LTE network.  Using a pretty snazzy PDF comparison chart, Clear points out that they provide 4G speeds at a lower prices and with the benefit of unlimited usage.  Not only that, but they can handle more devices “across a future-proof network with significantly more capacity”.  Take that.

We’ve pasted a graphic of the sheet below, but you’d can read the full document on Google Docs!

    Makes sense. I’m not that interested in “4G” yet, but at $45 for unlimited, I’d seriously look at Sprint/Clearwire if I had to make a decision. As usual, count on Verizon to set the bar high — pricewise.

    Because that $5 more a month is a killer!

    Better in building penetration, lower latency and faster speeds, well worth my extra $5 a month.

    That’s funny given that:
    1. Neither Verizon’s LTE network nor Sprint’s WiMAX networks are true 4G networks
    2. Mobile WiMAX is dead
    Sprint is just trying everything they can to stay afloat

    You do realize Verizons service is capped not unlimited right? I think if anything we are going to see some mergers in the cellphone biz.
