With “4G” on the horizon (some are reluctant or plain refusing to call WiMax 4G) and the Sprint and Clearwire merger finished, the latter has decided to change its name. Instead of using the “Xohm” name Sprint had for its WiMax services, Clearwire has decided to just call itself “Clear”. We figure that after closing a $14.5 billion merger with Sprint, and receiving a generous $3.2 billion from major investors and tech companies, they clearly wanted a change (bad pun, we know). Now we’ll know the future WiMax company by its short, sweet, and crystal clear name. For the first twenty days, Clear, formerly Clearwire, will be trading with the CLWRD symbol before going back to CLWR. The future is looking pretty bright for Clear after being given the go-ahead by the FCC and the all-clear by its shareholders and investors. Have we driven the new company’s name into your head enough yet?
