Clearwire, Jolt sign wholesale agreement
Clearwire and Jolt Mobile, a full-service prepaid wireless solution provider, today announced a wholesale agreement that will enable Jolt Mobile to offer its customers high-speed mobile broadband service using Clearwire’s 4G network.
Jolt Mobile offers no-contract pre-paid and pay-as-you-go wireless plans that enable its customers – consisting mainly of ethnic communities, students and seniors – to affordably connect with family and friends nationwide and throughout the world. Under its agreement with Clearwire, Jolt Mobile customers will have the option to add 4G mobile broadband service on Clearwire’s 4G network to their plans.
Clearwire is constructing a next-generation 4G LTE Advanced-ready network to address the capacity needs of carriers in urban markets where demand for mobile broadband is high. As Clearwire’s LTE network comes online, Jolt Mobile and Clearwire expect to pursue an agreement to offer users even faster speeds on this network.
