I remember when I first made mention of Clearwire. In just a couple of years, it has expanded beyond its public beta to go on and service other areas such as Seattle and the surrounding county.

Today, its IPO continues to do well, however, I believe its successful boom into the market will eventually return to Earth once people get a handle on the limitations put forth with any kind of Internet service that does not have hard-line redundancy offered by such companies as cable companies and DSL alternatives.

But then again, I never did pursue Clearwire with a request to beta test its service back in 2005 – maybe I should have? What do you think? Use the comments area to sound off with your thoughts on whether Clearwire has a shot at competing with established broadband options.
