Time Warner Dallas Customers Get WiMax December 1
Launch joins bevy of North Carolina launches
by Karl Bode 08:47AM Tuesday Nov 24 2009
Like Comcast, Time Warner Cable is reselling Clearwire Mobile WiMax service and bundling it with the company's existing broadband, TV and VoIP services. Back in October, the company indicated that they'd be launching their incarnation of the service starting December 1 in Raleigh, Durham, Cary, Chapel Hill, Charlotte and Greensboro. Now, the company is indicating that they'll also be launching the service in Dallas starting December 1. Pricing for the "up to 6 Mbps" service ranges from $39.95 a month to $79.95 a month depending on you bundling options, and comes in three flavors:

Road Runner Mobile 4G National Elite: gives customers unlimited access to both Time Warner Cable`s 4G Mobile Network and Sprint's 3G EVDO network for $79.95 if you're a Roadrunner Standard or Turbo customers.

Road Runner Mobile 4G Elite: gives customers unlimited access to the Time
Warner Cable 4G Mobile Network for $49.95 if you're already a Roadrunner Standard or Turbo customer.

Road Runner Mobile 4G Choice: gives customers access to the Time Warner Cable 4G Mobile Network for $39.95 if you're already bundling at least two Time Warner Cable services. The tier also caps usage at 2GB per month.

Users get additional discounts if they're triple play customers. According to Time Warner Cable, they'll be expanding the service into Honolulu and Maui later this year, and into San Antonio and Austin in early 2010.

Re: 18 months to live

Why?

While TWC's offerings are crap, Clear's offerings (on whose network TWC is running their services) are great. Also, I'm sure Clear got money from TWC specifically to build out these markets, so who cares whether you sign up for the TWC service. Just sign up for Clear and rock on.

Verizon and AT&T's LTE offerings are going to eat Clear's lunch.

Re: 18 months to live

Verizon's will, assuming they don't cap LTE, in a few years, assuming Clear doesn't upgrade their equipment. AT&T will probably be another couple years after that in terms of rolling out LTE, so Clear has time...

Umm No Clearwire is for not choosing a global standard for true 4G. And AT&T and Verizon LTE hasn't even been launched yet. But because it's using the 700mhz frequency it will easily dominate Wi-Max

Wont work...

if you have energy efficient windows. Most homes/apartments in Dallas have them to offset our brutally hot summers. This will fail epically if they don't provide an external antenna.

This is Clear. TWC's just dragging their feet about launching their MVNO in these areas.

Re: dont they got clear in dallas?

Agreed. However it's definitely Clear, and Clear's non-promo mobile pricing is simiplar to TWC's bundle pricing.

Not necessarily "reselling Clear service"

They might use the same towers and wireless spectrum, and maybe Clear operates and maintains those, but there is the possibility that the service will differ in who's Internet backbone the traffic goes over. In the case of Clear and Sprint, they use separate networks and each has it's own advantages and disadvantages. Clear has more stable and lower latency, less throughput bandwidth, and Sprint runs over their own sprint.net network and the speed is significantly higher than Clear (upto 16Mbps download and 5Mbps upload) and latency is double that of Clear's. I think Comast might use Clear for Internet transport in some areas and their own network in others. There are going to be differences.
