Clearwire said today that it is launching wireless high-speed Internet access in Yakima March 27.
Yakima is Clearwire's seventh market in Washington state, with two more -- in Wenatchee and Kitsap County -- set to launch soon. The Seattle area, including Everett and Tacoma, is the largest market Clearwire is providing service in today.
A short event is scheduled to take place March 27 from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Yakima Convention Center. Featured speakers will include Yakima Mayor Dave Edler, Mike Morrisette, Greater Yakima Chamber of Commerce CEO, Heidi Anderson of Children's Wishes & Dreams, and Bill Dochnahl, Clearwire's general manager for Yakima.
