LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Just in time for Cyber Monday, Southland smartphone, iPad and laptop users can access the new 4G Internet network, according to Clearwire Corp.
Clearwire, a wireless broadband service provider largely owned by Sprint Nextel, operates the first 4G network in the country. The company says CLEAR 4G will enable people and businesses to access the Internet at speeds four times faster than 3G. Although 4G is not as fast or reliable as cable and DSL connections, it is the fastest Internet connection for mobile devices.
In Los Angeles and Orange County, CLEAR potentially covers more than 11 million people, according to the company. Regionally, the service extends from West Hills, east of Burbank, to Irvine and back up to Ontario, including most of the Los Angeles metro area. A detailed coverage map of CLEAR 4G service is available at www.clear.com/coverage.
“It is only fitting that on Cyber Monday, the busiest online shopping day of the year, consumers can now access their favorite retail websites while on the go,’ said Allan Lamb, regional general manager for CLEAR.
“Consumers can get a jump on their holiday shopping while out and about the city, whether at a park or commuting on the bus. We’re excited to offer mobile internet that’s both affordable and without data limits.’
CLEAR 4G products and services, as well as kiosk and dealer locations, are available by going online at www.clear.com/los-angeles or calling (877) 499- 6681. CLEAR service is also available from Best Buy, RadioShack, Micro Center and Fry’s Electronics.
CLEAR 4G service is currently available in 68 markets across the United States.
