One of the larger (relatively speaking) BWIA news buzzes today... yet another slow BWIA news day... is that Clearwire has launched (still apparently proprietary Motorola Expedience, not Mobile WiMAX... but, to Clearwire's credit, at least they're not trying to spin it as "kind of WiMAX-ish") a new service area in Rochester, New York, a burg of about 220,000 souls. But on the same day:
- Alaska Communications Systems reported that they have expanded CDMA coverage in Peterspurg, Alaska,
- Verizon Wireless expanded its CDMA / 1xEV-DO network in Northwest Indiana, and
- Just in time for that gift of always-on Broadband Internet Access to the folks back in Helena, Missoula, Billings, and [other Montana] communities along Interstates 94 and 90 that can't get DSL or cable modem, and satellite Broadband Internet Access still sucks and is too expensive... Alltel has expanded its CDMA/1xEV-DO network in Montana.
