Wireless 4G broadband provider Clearwire today announced the availability of its Clear iSpot, which is a personal hotspot for Apple devices such as the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

"With the iSpot, Apple customers don't have to sort through confusing service plans with overage fees, nor do they have to worry about how much data they're using," said Thomas Enraght-Moony, senior vice president of marketing at Clearwire. "Instead, with Clear, customers can run all of their Apple mobile devices at true broadband speeds for a single, simple monthly fee."

The iSpot is Clear's first 4G personal mobile hotspot made exclusively for Apple mobile products. iSpot users can share 4G speed with up to eight Wi-Fi-enabled Apple mobile devices simultaneously.

With the Clear Internet service, Apple's iPad, iPod Touch and iPhone can access a mobile broadband experience with average mobile download speeds of 3 to 6 Mbps, with bursts over 10 Mbps, which should come in handy for users who want to download movies or watch live sporting events.

Clearwire's investors include Sprint, Time Warner Cable, Intel, Bright House Networks and Time Warner Cable.
