Dayton Becomes First Ohio City to Experience Clearwire Wireless Broadband Internet
Internet Service Provider Introduces Its Cutting-Edge Services to Residents and Businesses in the Ohio Area and Partners with Helping Hands Community Outreach Center
DAYTON, Ohio, Aug 02, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Clearwire Corporation (NASDAQ:CLWR) is bringing the freedom of wireless broadband Internet service to the Dayton, Ohio, area with its official launch today. Residents and businesses now have a fast, simple, portable, reliable and affordable alternative to traditional dial-up, cable and DSL. Clearwire service 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 changing the way Dayton-area residents and businesses connect online and with one another, by offering a simple, quick connection process coupled with exceptional customer service and portability," said Bill Snoeberger, Clearwire's regional vice president in Dayton. "In addition to launching our innovative services today, we are proud to announce a partnership with the Helping Hands Community Outreach Center located in nearby Trotwood, where we will donate a completely brand new computer lab outfitted with Clearwire service so that the center can continue to empower youth and adults through computer and Internet skills training."

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 Dayton's newest businesses and community partners, Clearwire is partnering with the Helping Hands Community Outreach Center by sponsoring the "Clearwire Learning Lab" -- a computer lab that will allow students computer access to create resumes, learn how to use various computer applications and more. Helping Hands is dedicated to empowering youth and adults to become tomorrow's leaders through the development of social, educational and economic skills.

"We are extremely excited, honored and grateful that Clearwire has chosen to support the Helping Hands Community Outreach Center," explained Neldra Glasper, director, Helping Hands Community Outreach Center. "Clearwire's generous donation to help renovate our computer lab as well as the laptops and Internet service they have given us will help our members tremendously. More people will now have access to learning tools essential in earning a GED, computer applications necessary to complete school projects and other endless opportunities available via the Internet."

From students or realtors to entrepreneurial accountants or construction site managers, Clearwire is an ideal solution for anyone in search of portable high-speed Internet service. Simply purchase a modem at the Dayton or Fairfield Commons Mall or the new Clearwire store at the Harshman Shopping Center, slated to open Aug. 8.
