Comcast Corporation is working on a new initiative while partnering with Clearwire Corp. and several other companies that utilize WiMax technologies. The initiative is the implementation of fourth-generation (4G) broadband services. People on 3G networks are already able to update their blogs and websites.
But the Comcast High-Speed 2go service will allow those using laptops and netbooks use a wireless connection anywhere in the U.S. The connection will be available at speeds faster than before. The download speeds will be about 4 megabits per second compared to the 1-1.5 megabit speeds available on 3G networks.
High-Speed 2go is now available in Portland, Oregon. The service will be available in Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Chicago by the end of the year. The service will cost $49.99 per month. A nationwide version will be available for $69.99 per month.
