Advantages of clearwire

Clearwire contains the ability to connect people, who are unable to physically interact with one another when necessary. For instance, long-distance weddings.

Can be used within a corporation for business meetings.

Can also be used recreationally for family and friends to communicate.

Within schools and colleges, Clearwire can be used to connect students and professors for online classes. This would improve the quality of an online class and give more people the opportunity to complete a degree.

In the future, Clearwire may possibly be used to connect people without having to leave work or home to complete tasks at hand. School, work, shopping, everything could be done this way.

Collaboratively this technology can really bring people together as a whole.
