Clearwire has apparently launched services in Belgium: It sounds as though the network is already live and serving customers but for some reason Clearwire isn’t talking about it. Seems like an unusual way to try to attract customers.
I wrote about Clearwire’s activities in Europe a couple of months ago when Caroline Gabriel at Rethink Research said that she expected Belgium to be the next European launch for Clearwire. At the time, she thought Clearwire may have already launched in Denmark but I haven’t been able to find any confirmation of that.
In Belgium, Clearwire is using the 3.5 GHz band and seems to be offering a good price for the access, although I’m not familiar enough with the market in Belgium to know what competitors there are charging.
Perhaps Clearwire is hoping to soft launch service in a few markets in Europe and then orchestrate a larger media announcement about its plans. We’ll just have to wait and see.
