Clearwire teams with Taiwanese WiMAX providers

Clearwire is extending its reach into Taiwan. The company has signed a memorandum of understanding with Vee Telecom Multimedia to provide WiMAX services in Taiwan. In addition, it has agreed to cooperate on roaming, technology and digital content with Global Mobile Corp., another Taiwanese WiMAX operator.

A Vee Telecom executive told Dow Jones that Clearwire will have a small stake in Vee Telecom (less than 10 percent) in exchange for consulting on WiMAX-related infrastructure issues. Taichung-based Vee Telecom plans to launch WiMAX in southern Taiwan later this year.

Meanwhile, Clearwire has embarked on an aggressive deployment schedule in the U.S. The company has said it will launch in at least eight markets this year and by the end of 2010 it will cover 120 million POPs.
