Comcast has launched a WiMax multi-modal service in Portland, Ore., that lets customers use either Clearwire WiMAX or Comcast cable for Internet access at one fixed charge. An additional plan offers access to Sprint’s national 3G network.

The plan is aimed at the RBOCs’ success with smartphones in promoting their own data plans for wireless, creating a useful bundle for consumers. RBOCs are also expected to launch femtocell-based services that would directly integrate wireless and wireline. Comcast says it will follow up with similar services in other Clearwire WiMax cities.
