FreedomPop, a new wave telecom company created by the co-founder of Skype, has selected the Clear Wireless Internet network as the source who will power its free mobile broadband service. The strategic wholesale relationship will allow FreedomPop to meet its goal of free access for all in the United States when it launches in the second half of 2012. The company will pay wholesale rates for access to the wireless network, but other details of the agreement remain unknown. Clearwire’s Senior Vice President of Wholesale says that the partnership is key, as it offers a service model that is unique to wireless broadband, and will give it a much-needed shake up. Clear wireless currently services over 100 million U.S. customers, with plans for its 4G LTE advanced-ready network to come online in the coming months.
