Clearwire Launches Test in Silicon Valley

Clearwire (CLWR) today announced the launch of its a developer version of 4G service in the Bay Area. The developer version of the WiMax-based network covers “more than 20 square miles” in Santa Clara, Mountain View and “parts of downtown” Palo Alto. (Parts? Downtown Palo Alto isn’t that big; it only cover parts of it?) Clearwire notes that the service area includes the headquarters of both Intel (INTC) and Google (GOOG); the Cisco (CSCO) campus will be adding “in the coming months.” All three companies will be
“partners” in the project, the company said.

Clearwire plans to launch full service in the Bay Area in 2010.

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
