KIRKLAND, Wash., NEW YORK CITY, and OVERLAND PARK, Kan., July 12, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clearwire (NASDAQ: CLWR), Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC) and Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced a significant expansion of the Clearwire 4G network footprint and key capacity upgrades for mobile broadband customers in the greater New York City metro area. The regional CLEAR®, Time Warner Cable Mobile Internet and Sprint 4G service area have added coverage for an additional 91,363 people. Now, more than 11,927,000 people in the New York City area have access to Clearwire's 4G mobile broadband network. This expansion represents new coverage since Clearwire's initial launch on November 1, 2010.
Enhanced capacity and expanded coverage can be experienced in the following communities: Alpine, Bayonne, Elizabeth, Fair Lawn, Newark, Paramus, Secaucus, Union, NJ; and Hartsdale, New Rochelle, New York, Rockville Centre, Yonkers, NY.
Clearwire/Sprint 4G works well inside NYC so far, but the coverage consistency needs to be improved (no service in Coney Island depot).
BTW, Hastings doesn't have service while areas north and south have. Clearwire should take a look at it.
So far I am rather happy with the service after 8 months of service (around 80-140GB as home internet and get 6-8Mbps average with 12Mbps max).
