Chicago is expected to be a launchpad for the next generation of
wireless networks, blanketed with a fast Internet signal-accessible to
subscribers from homes, streets and traveling vehicles
-and capable of
giving mundane home appliances a voice.

the traditional barriers between devices and content providers and, for
example, allow a consumer to watch a TV program on a conventional set, a
phone or a laptop computer, either at home or on the go.

Clearwire started working together, they made plans to roll out the
service first in Chicago, as well as Baltimore and Washington.
