Best Buy to sell Clearwire WiMax in NYC in 2011 at $30+/mo. #WiMax #broadband #nyc

Best Buy has announced a wholesale deal in which Best Buy would offer Clearwire’s WiMax service through the retailer’s recently announced Connect service. Best Buy plans to start offering the service in 2011, but didn’t provide a specific date.

The company’s 4G service is currently available in 36 cities and is expected to add 24 more by the end of the year. The additional cities include New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Denver and Miami.

How Best Buy will offer the Clearwire service was not disclosed, but the latter company last month introduced three 4G modems.

Clearwire says its usage plans do not require long-term service contracts. Unlimited 4G coverage starts at $30 in most markets for residential service and unlimited mobile plans start at $40.
