WiMAX operator clwr finally added the biggest city in the country to its coverage list today, turning up service in New York and surrounding areas and adding some 11M people to its total. Over in NJ, they also added Trenton and New Brunswick with another 250K and 630K respectively. Up in Connecticut, it was New Haven and Hartford that came online, with another 1.5M. And down in Florida, it was the Tampa-St.Petersburg-Clearwater area with nearly 2M. Maps are better than words, as always, so here are some quick snapshots off their coverage maps:
With Trenton and New Brunswick in the mix, the coverage areas of Philadelphia and New York *almost* touch. I assume Stamford is on the way as well as perhaps New London - bringing the I-95 corridor in the northeast pretty much all online. All in all though, Clearwire added over 15M in population to its coverage list. More major cities to come by the end of the year too.
