Comcast introduces data-only service – USA

Comcast has unveiled its first “High-Speed 2go” data-only service in Portland. The service will be made available to more locations such as Atlanta, Chicago and Philadelphia by the end of 2009. Comcast will piggyback on Clearwire’s mobile WiMAX platform and on Sprint-Nextel’s 3G data EV-DO network. The company will bundle the service for its residential and small-sized business customers with one or more of its existing products.

With this Comcast has become the first of Clearwire’s partners to launch an MVNO service on top of one of Clearwire’s own WiMAX markets.
