I've posted recently about the Clearwire and Sprint WiMAX partnership because I think it's a signal that the broadcasting and consumer electronics industries need to get ready for WiMAX-to-the-dashboard. Jacqui Cheng gives us another signal with a story about Google coming to the party. The story ends:
... Google's current collaboration with Sprint will provide a boost as Sprint and its WiMAX partner, Clearwire, try to raise the profile of WiMAX. The wireless broadband technology has had a hard time getting off the ground in the US, but Sprint plans to roll the high-speed wireless tech out in Chicago, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. by the end of the year, and 17 more US cities by April of 2008. The company says that it hopes to reach 100 million people by the end of 2008.
