Comcast Mobilizes In Mile High City With Clearwire

The MSO's pricing for starts at $25 per month for the 3G-only plan for the first 12 months as an add-on to wired broadband service. The 3G/4G plan is $40 per month for 12 months bundled with broadband.

Clearwire advertises its Clear service as providing download speeds of 3 to 6 Megabits per second -- with bursts of more than 10 Mbps -- and uploads up to 1 Mbps.

Comcast is an investor in Clearwire, which is majority-owned by Sprint and also has received funding from Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Intel and Google.
