Hello, Texas: TWC launches business WiMAX offering in Lone Star State
Time Warner Cable Business Class, a division of Time Warner Cable, today announced the debut of its WiMAX wireless data service in Texas.
The service, which is called Business Class Mobile, is available in Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi and Wichita Falls, with additional markets slated throughout 2010.
The 4G service, which is offered through Time Warner Cable’s partnership with Clearwire, has previously been deployed in Charlotte, Raleigh and Greensboro, N.C., and in Honolulu and Maui in Hawaii.
Business Class Mobile allows employees who are out of the office to download large files, as well as access intranet sites, customer relationship management tools and other company-related information.
Business Class Mobile delivers both high-speed wireless download speeds of up to 6 Mbps when inside the Time Warner Cable 4G service area and offers access to a national 3G network when customers travel outside of the 4G coverage area.
Business Class Mobile customers will also have access to the 4G network in additional Clearwire markets outside of the Time Warner Cable footprint, including Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Philadelphia and Seattle.
In 2010, 4G network coverage is slated to expand to additional cities, including New York, Boston, Washington, D.C., the San Francisco Bay Area, Kansas City, Cincinnati, Cleveland and Los Angeles.
"With Business Class Mobile, our customers' employees will be more productive by enabling them to take the office with them when they are on the go," said John Owen, president of Time Warner Cable's Business Class operation in Texas. "This wireless solution further broadens our portfolio of products and services for the commercial segment."
The service is offered as part of a bundled solution to Time Warner Cable Business Class customers who currently have, or are acquiring, one or more of the company's services: Internet, phone, cable TV or Ethernet.
