WASHINGTON, July 30, 2010 – Best Buy’s new mobile broadband service provider, Best Buy Connect, will be adding 4G options to its customers.

Best Buy has formed a wholesale relationship with Clearwire, and will use Clearwire’s WiMax network to provide customers with mobile broadband beginning in 2011. Best Buy is the first major corporation to partner with Clearwire to provide 4G service under its own brand name. Best Buy Connect has not revealed if the service will be available country-wide or only in areas with WiMax markets.

This relationship will further Best Buy’s focus in creating a store where customers can buy electronic devices, receive support, and set up connectivity at one place. Best Buy Connect currently offers 3G through Sprint, who partly owns Clearwire.
