Clearwire Cuts the Cord in Corpus Christi by Introducing High-Speed Wireless Services

Residents and Businesses of "The Sparkling City by the Sea"

Experience the Freedom of Wireless Broadband Internet Access

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 1, 2007--Clearwire Corporation (NASDAQ: CLWR) is changing the way South Texas connects online with the official launch today of its wireless high-speed Internet and phone service in the Corpus Christi area. Residents and businesses can now experience a fast, simple, portable, reliable and affordable alternative to traditional dial-up, cable and DSL. Clearwire eliminates the confines of traditional cable or telephone wiring, allowing customers to connect at home, a local coffeehouse, the office or virtually anywhere else in the Clearwire service area.

"Clearwire is bringing the freedom of wireless Internet to a person rather than a place -- to Corpus Christi residents," said Steven Freeman, Clearwire's general manager of Corpus Christi. "We offer an unparalleled experience -- complete with an easy, simple connection process as well as exceptional customer service and portability. Additionally, we are extremely pleased to announce a partnership with the Corpus Christi Literacy Council, a local organization dedicated to improving education and literacy throughout the Corpus Christi community."

A Community Partner

Clearwire is committed to helping make a difference in the communities it serves. Through its "Clearly Connected Communities" the company provides simple, reliable and portable Internet service to local community organizations. To celebrate its entry as one of Corpus Christi's newest business and community partners, Clearwire is teaming up with the Corpus Christi Literacy Council, an organization dedicated to providing local residents with basic English instruction as well as English as a Second Language offerings.

"Clearwire is providing Corpus Christi with a great service," explained Mary Gleason, director, Corpus Christi Literacy Council. "Clearwire's donation of portable services and computer access will provide our tutors and our students with reliable Internet access, allowing them to take advantage of the tools available beyond the confines of our computer lab to enhance learning and language skills."

The Clearwire Difference

Clearwire is an ideal solution for anyone in search of portable high-speed Internet service. Simply purchase a modem at a local retailer including a new Clearwire store at 5425 S. Padre Island Drive, Circuit City, Best Buy or online at www.clearwire.com, and within minutes, Internet access or phone will be up and running. Clearwire's coverage area for Corpus includes Robstown, Sinton, Gregory, Portland, Rockport, Ingleside, Port Aransas and Aransas Pass.

Clearwire's next-generation, non-line-of-sight wireless broadband network solution connects customers through licensed or secured spectrum. Radio signals are transmitted from a tower to a small, wireless modem, which easily connects a user's computer to the Internet. With its simple plug-and-play installation customers can be on the Internet within minutes of set up.

In addition to wireless broadband Internet access, Clearwire also offers Internet phone services. Clearwire Internet Phone Service works with a customer's existing high-speed Internet access and provides unlimited local and long-distance calling from a regular telephone. Corpus Christi customers can dial family and friends in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico.
