Probably further annoying the Vonage users that it supposedly cut-off last year, WiMax "class"
wireless broadband provider Clearwire
has just announced its own
Bell Canada-powered VoIP service for that works with regular telephones, or for more sophisticated call control, over a
user's PC. The new service, which is currently limited to Clearwire subscribers in the Stockton, California market, and
further restricted to those residents who are "e911 capable," requires a $15 Internet adapter if you want to
use a regular corded or cordless phone, and costs $30-a-month for unlimited calling within the US and Canada
(international calls are supposedly "competitively priced"). That thirty bucks also gets you
browser-configurable call forwarding, "Find Me Follow Me" enhanced call forwarding, caller ID, voice mail,
voice mail-to-email capabilities, and caller blocking, as well as the semi-useful ability to get your mobile VoIP on
anywhere Clearwire has coverage (currently 200 US/international cities that most people don't live in), if you don't
mind toting your laptop and modem around.
