Posted: 22-Sep-2010 [Source: Clearwire]

[Clearwire and UQ Communications of Japan collaborate to offer a Day Pass to use unlimited data while travelling throughout covered markets in Japan and U.S.]

Kirkland, WA -- Clearwire Corporation, a leading provider of wireless broadband services and operator of the largest 4G network in the country, today announced that it has launched 4G roaming services with UQ Communications of Japan. Clearwire and UQ have collaborated to offer their customers the ability to take 4G speeds beyond their borders and to leverage true mobile broadband like never before. Available today, Clearwire and UQ customers using Intel™ WiMAX embedded netbooks and notebooks will be able to sign-up for a Day Pass and use unlimited data while travelling throughout the covered markets in Japan and the United States.

“The ability to offer mobile broadband access at home and abroad will quickly become a key differentiator for wireless data providers around the world,” said Dave Maquera, Chief Strategy Officer at Clearwire. “This initial effort lays the groundwork for additional international roaming options and demonstrates Clearwire’s commitment to developing global roaming capabilities now and into the future.”

"Expanding our customers’ access to true mobile broadband service in the U.S. is an important step for UQ,” said Akio Nozaka of UQ Communications. “Clearwire’s rapidly growing 4G footprint and unmatched spectrum position will provide our users with the speed and capacity needed for advanced wireless data services as we expand our services globally."

Clearwire and UQ currently offer 4G services in their respective domestic markets. Clearwire provides CLEAR 4G mobile broadband service to consumers and businesses. With CLEAR, anyone can use the internet at speeds four times faster than 3G* – whether at home, in the office, or on-the-go within the CLEAR coverage area. CLEAR subscribers traveling to Japan can get a UQ WiMAX day pass for 600 JPY (approximately USD$6-7). UQ provides UQ WiMAX wireless internet service to more than 90 percent of the population in 15 of Japan’s largest cities, including Tokyo, Osaka, and Nagoya.

Clearwire is actively working with its Global Alliance Partners and other international service providers to offer the same capability in different countries around the world.
