MACAU--(Marketwire - May 23, 2011) - Today, announced its research report highlighting Clearwire Corporation (NASDAQ: CLWR) and FiberTower Corporation (NASDAQ: FTWR). Full content and research is available at

While net earnings only increased by single digits in 2010, compared to previous double digit rates, opportunity exists for carriers to use rising free cash flow to invest in advanced technologies, especially broadband wireless data and video services. A strong trend has emerged as the data service segment has seen impressive growth in average revenue per user; companies with the ability to quickly adapt and act on this new data are well-positioned.

Mobile WiMAX is emerging as a competitive threat to the incumbent wireless providers. With the Sprint Nextel spin-off of its WiMAX assets in the new Clearwire entity, a dedicated and capable force has been created with the ability to quickly build out its network, resulting in a net positive for the tower providers.
