Clearwire Communications is expanding its sales operations for CLEAR’s mobile Internet service in the Philadelphia area, effective today.
CLEAR covers 1000 square miles and approximately 3.6 million people in the Philadelphia market. Regionally, service extends as far north as Bucks County, south to the Delaware state line below the Philadelphia airport, east to Cherry Hill, N.J. and west to the Phoenixville and Malvern areas.
“CLEAR is excited to bring to Philadelphia residents, businesses and visitors an Internet experience similar to what they’re used to having at home or the office, anywhere around town or on the go,” said Andrew Kupiec, Clearwire general manager, Philadelphia. “We’re pleased to provide this community a valuable new category of Internet service designed to make people’s lives more enjoyable and more productive.”
The CLEAR customer experience is similar to that provided by Wi-Fi, but without the short range limitations of a traditional Internet hot spot, the company says. CLEAR, which uses 4G WiMAX technology, touts average mobile download speeds of 3 to 6 mbps with bursts over 10 mbps.
CLEAR’s mobile and residential plans can be purchased by the day or by the month, and with several no service contract options are available. Home Internet service plans start at $25 per month, while mobile Internet plans start at $35 per month, or customers can purchase a day pass for $10.
Additional savings are available for customers by purchasing a combination of services that could include home-and-mobile or mobile-and-mobile Internet plans starting at $55 for both, or by signing up for a two-year service agreement. The dual-mode 4G/3G plan is available for $70 per month with a two-year service agreement.
CLEAR service is available online at Clear.com and beginning today at CLEAR retail stores and authorized dealer locations throughout the Philadelphia area.
