With the shareholder approval
finally taken care of, the massive deal to build a new nationwide WiMax network
under the Clearwire
(Nasdaq: CLWR) name can (finally!) now begin in earnest. While those of us who have been following the events over the past year know pretty much what is on Clearwire's immediate to-do list
, for those who are playing catch-up may we suggest you order the new, updated version of our WiMax report
, which includes a comprehensive study of the "new" Clearwire WiMax deal
and its $3.2 billion of investment from a group that includes Google, Comcast, Intel
and Time Warner Cable.
When you read the report you will learn:
-- The new opportunities and challenges for Clearwire's national focus, which is a departure from previous plans
-- The motivations for Google's $500 million investment, which go beyond business goals for search and mobility to include public-policy goals
-- Why the big telcos, AT&T and Verizon, may not see WiMax as a prime competitor (even as they step up marketing and lobbying efforts to make life harder for WiMax)
-- Why cable providers like Comcast
may be looking to WiMax to expand their user footprint beyond its current regulatory limits
The report also contains a WiMax technical and historical backgrounder, as well as an updated look at the WiMax business opportunities for enterprises, investors and entrepreneurs in markets including mobile Internet businesses, software development, and mobile device manufacturing.
