A little more than a month after Clear's mobile WiMAX service became available in Atlanta, the company has officially "launched" the 4G service and is marketing it to consumers. The company is offering mobile Internet plans starting at $40 per month, or consumers can buy a day pass for $10 per day.
The Clear service in Atlanta uses Motorola WiMAX equipment and customers can get the service if they purchase either a Motorola USB modem or residential modem. The USB modem is selling for $59.99 or can be leased for just $4.99 per month. The residential modem is available for $79.99 or can be leased for $4.99 per month.
Other options available to Clear subscribers include the Clear Spot--a WiFi device that can connect to Clear's mobile WiMAX network--and numerous embedded WiMAX laptops.
Clear's WiMAX service has only been available in Portland, Ore., since the beginning of January, but other rollouts are planned for Las Vegas, Chicago and Dallas later this year. Mobile WiMAX service that was running under the Sprint Xohm brand in Baltimore will also be merged under the Clear brand at a later date.
