Clearwire MVNO

Telephony magazine takes some pot shots at Clearwire's 4G roll-out including calling it tiny and ineffective. Ineffective? Yes. It seems that Mobile Broadband should be, well, mobile.

"The funny thing about mobile broadband is that people actually want to use it while mobile. Clearwire has warmed to that notion, announcing today that not only will majority owner Sprint become a mobile virtual network operator on Clearwire’s WiMAX network, but Clearwire will become an MVNO on Sprint’s EV-DO 3G network. The result: Clearwire’s mobile broadband footprint will expand overnight from four markets covering only a few handfuls of millions to a coast-to-coast network covering hundreds of millions within and without all of the country’s major metro regions."

Know why your buyers are buying from you. Ask them. Until you know, you can't offer better service to more customers.
