AOL and Clearwire Enter Wireless Broadband Marketing Pact

Clearwire will begin offering AOL High Speed service over its broadband wireless service in selected U.S. markets for $25.90 per month, under a marketing pact announced by the firms. The first markets are Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, Florida, as well as Stockton and Modesto, California.


  • Clearwire is the broadband wireless provider founded by Craig McCaw. Clearwire is using a WiMAX class access solution developed by its wholly-owned subsidiary, NextNet Wireless. The service operates at FCC-licensed 2.5 GHz frequencies in all of its U.S. markets. Clearwire sends its signal wirelessly from a transmitter on top of a cell tower to a specially developed receiver modem.
