"Fiber to the home would be unnecessary."

Clearwire???s 40 MHz bandwidth will support peak speeds of 168 Mbps, twice as fast as anything Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile can throw it, according to John Saw, CTO of Clearwire.

LTE Advanced supports 8??8 MIMO downlink antennas. With a 40 MHz pipe, each sector might support 600 Mbps, or 30 subscribers streaming at 20 Mbps (times 3 sectors) ??? that???s wireless cable. Multi-casting might transmit a base of 6-8 local channels at little or low cost. Fiber to the home would be unnecessary.
