WiMax Launches in Portland


Intel and Clearwire are announcing the launch of WiMax, a next-generation wireless broadband service, today in Portland, OR. It will provide high-speed Internet access to laptops and mobile devices across Portland, which is the second U.S. city to deploy the service (after Baltimore, MD). Last month, Clearwire received a $3.2 billion investment from Comcast, Intel, Time Warner Cable, Google, and Bright House Networks.
