It's been less than a year since it went live, but Clearwire has now officially dropped its Rover pre-paid WiMAX service, saying that it was simply a way to \"test some new pay-as-you-go pricing options and was offered on a limited retail basis in a couple markets.\" As you may recall, the brand offe

Citing \"personal reasons,\" Clearwire boss Bill Morrow has rather suddenly stepped down from his positions both as CEO and executive board director.

There's just nothing quite like a promised kept, you know? Back in May, we heard that the financially troubled Clear would be making a comeback this fall, and lo and behold, the first Clear security lanes in quite some time have opened up in Orlando International Airport (MCO).
