Long website load times and slow buffering has long been a thorn in the side of WiFi users everywhere. What benefits does WiFi provide if your capacity for work is stymied by bandwidth and connectivity issues? Tack on high costs from providers and complex installation procedures and you many find yourself asking, "Why bother?" In today's market, these problems are as outdated as the software most WiFi providers are using. Time is money and in the current financial situation, you cannot afford to waste either. Clearwire, based in Kirkland WA, the nations leading wireless broadband provider, is committed to providing an inexpensive, reliable solution. WiMAX is the future of wireless Internet connections and the future is fast!

As of June 2008 it was estimated that 72 percent, or about 220 million Americans use the Internet. Of the 220 million Internet users, over 74 million are using high-speed Internet. While broadband providers such as DSL and Cable modems still dominate the market, the wireless broadband market continued to witness rapid developments throughout 2008. WiFi hotspots continued to open across the country, becoming commonplace in airports, cafes, offices and homes. Clearwire, in partnership with Sprint, is rolling out the first nationwide 4G mobile Internet wireless network. This 4G network, called WiMAX, was launched in Portland, Oregon in January of 2009.

Clearwire has already proven its merit in a short time since its WiMAX launch in 2009. The new mobile WiMAX services, under the Clear(TM) brand, has attracted investments from Intel, Time Warner Cable, Google and Bright House Networks. Unlike other wireless services, Clear(TM) delivers a "true broadband" experience. While mobile Internet customers can expect to receive up to 4 Mbps download speeds, up to 6 Mbps download speeds can be achieved with the Clear(TM) residential modem. As far as price goes for this Internet Lamborghini, one online blogger had this to say. "Clear is cheaper than 3 Mbps DSL or Cable Modem service. I'm a value shopper so that's important to me".    

Residential customers are not the only ones getting in on the wireless Internet revolution. Many businesses are adding Clearwire and Clear(TM) to their product line up. Internet Direct, a National Distributor for Clearwire, has seen an upswing in request for new dealers. "We are looking to build a nation wide dealer base", says Bryan Lee, Dealer Acquisitions Manager for Internet Direct. "It is a great product for retail electronic stores, computer shops and cellular retailers, but we are also looking for those just looking to start a business." Prime Direct, a DirecTV retailer in Oakdale, California and one of the nations leading DirecTV retailers, has now become one of the nation's leading Clearwire retailers.

Bryan Lee's excitement over this new service is infectious! "Opportunities like this only come along once in a while. Only a few recognize how immense it can be, while the rest go on to remorse in the shoulda, woulda, coulda. A true opportunity has a very small window before it becomes the mainstream." I believe that this is one of those rare chances to ride an opportunity from the beginning.
