Comment Re:Clearwire (Score 1) 202

Wikipedia's Clearwire entry says at the top:
"Clearwire currently uses Expedience wireless technology, dubbed Pre-WiMax, transmitted from cell sites over licensed spectrum of 2.5-2.6 GHz in the U.S. and 3.5 GHz in Europe."

And Clearwire's site says that they are using OFDM ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OFDM )

Motorola's Expedience overview is here:

So it looks like it's something like WiMAX because it's using the same type of signal multiplexing method. As Wikipedia says, Expedience is something like "Pre-WiMAX.

As far as WiMAX being the 56k of the future - well, I'm sure that's what Intel is hoping for. :)
