Cable's wireless play: Clearwire 4G in San Francisco, NYC

Even as Clearwire (Nasdaq: CLWR) searches for ways to get more operating cash--including potentially selling off some of its spectrum--the WiMAX provider continues to roll out new markets with its existing partners in the cable and telco space.

Sprint (NYSE: S) and Time Warner Cable (NYSE: TWC-WI) will launch their respective 4G brands using Clearwire in New York City Nov. 1 while Sprint will join Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) in launching 4G with Clearwire in San Francisco "before the end of this year," a news release said.
