Clear to launch two new VoIP-enabled WiMAX modems with built-in ATA

Updated 4 years ago

Clear may be expanding its WiMAX offerings with the select launch of two new feature-rich WiMAX modems targeting home consumers. In addition to WiMAX connectivity, both modems offer VoIP functionality and feature integrated ATA, an emerging trend that obviates the need for an external ATA device for VoIP. The first WiMAX device is the Series G Home Modem, a relatively unknown offering from Taiwanese manufacturer Gemtek. The Series G Home Modem will be available in the Las Vegas market for a final price of $69.99 when purchased outright or $4.99 monthly when leased. Next up is the Motorola CPEi 725, a consumer modem that appears to be a scaled down version of the CPEi 775 and includes VoIP, integrated ATA, and an omni-directional antenna. The Motorola CPEi 725 will launch in Portland, Oregon and will set you back $69.99 or $4.99 monthly on a lease. Both modems will be available to new Clear customers but it is unknown if they will be made available as an upgrade for current customers. Let’s hope Clear shares the love and offers these modems to both current and new customers and expands their availability outside of their select launch markets.
