Best Buy to use Clearwire network for Connect service

Thursday 29 July 2010 | 16:22 CET | News
US retailer Best Buy has agreed to resell Clearwire's Wimax service as part of its recently launched Best Buy Connect mobile internet service. Best Buy will launch the service based on a wholesale deal with Clearwire in 2011. This is Clearwire's first wholesale agreement beyond those with its shareholders - Sprint, Bright House, Time Warner Cable and Comcast already sell the Wimax service under their own names. The Best Buy Connect service currently uses the Sprint mobile network. Best Buy said the deal will help it develop a 'one-stop shop' for mobile phones, accesories and services.
