|Original Clearwire Ownership|
Comcast and Time Warner say they will wind down their Clearwire business over the next six months, and plan to move their existing customers to other options.
Not that the companies themselves, or rational observers, would claim that the services have been a wild success.
Comcast appears to have about 30,000 customers using the mobile service, out of 17.8 million traditional broadband subscribers. Bright House, which had the option to resell 4G service, never actually did so.
Time Warner, Comcast and Bright House Networks were among the original investors in Clearwire. Over time, Sprint has slightly reduced its ownership to about 54 percent, while Intel has said it will sell all of its stake.
