WASHINGTON, August 30, 2010 – Clearwire has announced the first pay-as-you-go service for WiMax. Marketed as the Rover, it offers users unlimited usage for various time periods. The product is marketed toward younger people who are not keen on paying recurring monthly charges.

“Simple, commitment-free wireless services are wildly popular with the Gen Y crowd, and Rover provides them with the first pay-as-you-go unlimited mobile internet offering at 4G speeds,” said Mike Sievert, chief commercial officer for Clearwire. “We’ve built Rover from the ground up with products, pricing and features designed specifically to serve a younger market who knows how you get connected is just as important as where. Expanding our offers to meet this underserved segment is an important new business opportunity for Clearwire as we continue to extend our leadership in mobile broadband.”

The service will use the Rover Puck, a WiMax to Wi-Fi hotspot, as its primary connection device but will also offer a USB stick.
