Clearwire on Thursday rolled out three new 4G modems, including one to support Apple laptops.
Clearwire has been expanding into new cities as it builds out its cities. The plan for Clearwire is to be able to reach 120 million people by the end of the year. Meanwhile, Clearwire has responded to AT&T's move to cap data plans by promising that its service will remain all you can eat.
- Clear Spot 4G serves as a Wi-Fi/Mi-Fi hotspot and can connect multiple devices to the 4G networks. This modem is manufactured by Infomark and will run you $99.99 or $4.99 for a monthly lease.
