Clearwire: Our LTE Advanced network will be able to hit 168 Mbps – FierceWireless

WiMAX provider Clearwire (NASDAQ:CLWR), which plans to deploy an LTE Advanced-ready network by June 2013, will be able to deliver theoretical peak speeds of up to 168 Mbps by 2014, according to CTO John Saw.

Saw told GigaOM that Clearwire plans to use carrier aggregation technology in its forthcoming TD-LTE network to meld together it spectrum holdings into 40 MHz-wide channels. Such a configuration would give Clearwire spectrum channels that would be twice as wide (2 X 10 MHz–i.e. 20 MHz) as the FDD LTE channels being deployed by Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) and AT&T Mobility (NYSE:T). (However, Verizon and AT&T’s 700 MHz spectrum has much better propagation characteristics than Clearwire’ 2.5 GHz spectrum).
