Clearwire Reports Record Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2010 Growth!
Clearwire (Nasdaq:CLWR), a leading provider of 4G wireless broadband services in the U.S., reported its financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and full year 2010.
Clearwire ended the fourth quarter 2010 with approximately 4.4 million total subscribers, consisting of 1.1 million retail subscribers and 3.3 million wholesale subscribers. During the fourth quarter 2010, Clearwire added 1.5 million total net new subscribers, including 126,000 retail additions and 1.42 million wholesale additions. Approximately 27% of our wholesale subscribers are users of multi-mode 3G/4G devices residing in areas where the Company has not yet launched 4G service, but from whom it currently expects to receive nominal revenue.
Revenue for the fourth quarter was $180.7 million, a 126% increase over fourth quarter 2009 revenue of $79.9 million. Consolidated average revenue per user (ARPU) was $16.07, composed of a record retail ARPU of $45.10 and wholesale ARPU of $3.52 in the fourth quarter. Reported wholesale ARPU was determined based only on the $26.2 million of wholesale revenue the Company recognized in the fourth quarter due to the Company's previously disclosed pricing disputes with Sprint. Over the past few weeks, Clearwire and Sprint have held a number of productive discussions about the outstanding wholesale pricing issues. While nothing has yet been finalized, the Company believes that an agreement with Sprint resolving those issues is imminent. Consolidated cost per gross subscriber addition (CPGA) was $60 in the fourth quarter, comprised of $422 CPGA from the retail business and no CPGA in the wholesale business. Consolidated monthly subscriber churn was 2.1% in the fourth quarter, consisting of 3.8% in the retail business and 1.4% in the wholesale business. Under the proposed terms, the Company expects to receive substantial additional wholesale revenue.
Clearwire continues to seek additional funding to continue its network development by looking at a number of funding and other strategic alternatives, including potential strategic transactions, additional debt or equity financings and/or asset sales. In the second half of 2010, Clearwire initiated a process to seek bids for the potential sale of certain excess spectrum. During the process, the Company received offers to purchase varying amounts of spectrum from multiple parties, some of whom also expressed interest in exploring other strategic transactions with the Company. Currently, Clearwire is evaluating the offers received for its spectrum and is holding discussions with the interested parties. As a result, Clearwire has not yet made a determination as to whether to proceed with any sale and the Company now expects to delay a conclusion until second quarter 2011.

Crown Equity Holdings Inc. (OTCBB:CRWE) announced that its subsidiary company, Crown Tele Services Inc. (http://www.crownteleservices.com) is still moving forward after dissolving its joint venture with Communication Expert Corporation and will gradually start rolling out its internet based voice and video service IP-PBX solutions this year.
The cornerstone of Crown Tele Services Inc. strategy is to meet the highest standards when it comes to delivering VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) communication solutions specifically designed to meet the market needs.

In fact, this also happens with regular voice - your sound signals are encoded and sent over a wire. With the Internet, such things become easy and voice communication can happen in real time just as with a normal phone.
According to ABI Research, the latest global business VoIP services forecasts show that the value of the overall market, which includes VoIP integrated access, SIP trunking, hosted IP-PBX/IP Centrex and managed IP-PBX services, is set to double over the next five years, to exceed $20 billion by 2015.

It is a generally known fact that the United States has been importing oil since the 1970's because oil production at home cannot meet the sky-rocketing demands of our consumption. According to the 2009 yearly average, the U.S. Crude Oil is devouring around 21 million barrels a day and U.S. production is approximately around 5 million. Why are things increasing so rapidly? Why are resources running out at such a high acceleration? There is no easy answer but all of it is very much related to one single idea: a great number of growth.
Within the last 200 years, the advancement in human technology has made our way of life totally dependent on Oil, Gas & Coal, which are the main elements for fuel for a variety purposes. What makes Oil different is the huge variety of goods that can be born from it. A small list of some of these products: Gasoline, Diesel, Fuel oil, Propane, Ethane, Kerosene, Liquid petroleum gas, Lubricants, other alkanes, heating oil, asphalt, bitumen, plastic, bags, toys, candles (paraffin), clothing (polyester, nylon), cosmetics, petroleum jelly, perfume, dish-washing liquids, ink, bubble gums, car tires and more.
So it is apparent that the modern industry is totally dependent on Oil.
However, the amount and size of Oil Reserves on the U.S. is immense. The U.S. has in fact the third largest oil production after Saudi Arabia and Russia.
Proper Power & Energy, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:PPWE.OB) announced recently that its wholly owned subsidiary, American Resources, Inc. (NYSE:ARI), has begun production on its 87.5 acres in Western Kentucky. ARI has completed the re-work on all 4 wells, with those wells online and pumping.
Proper Power & Energy, Inc. has announced the next stage of its Western U.S. operations. The Company met with the executives of Thrust Resources Inc. and EQ Resources Inc. in Dallas, Texas on January 20, 2011. The meeting focused on a joint venture for the Central Utah Prospect between the Companies. This was the initial meeting between Clint Brower, CEO and Chairman of EQ Resources, and Andrew Kacic, the newly named President of Proper Power & Energy Inc.
In other recent news, Proper Power & Energy, Inc. has been approached by two independent financing groups and has submitted a $10 million private placement memorandum to each of them. These two groups are seeking domestic oil and gas production in light of the Middle East tensions.
"The timing to acquire oil and gas properties while gas prices are low couldn't be better. Additionally, the availability of this funding for developing Proper Power's Kentucky and Utah oil prospects will accelerate 2011 revenues and leasehold acreage growth dramatically. We anticipate feedback from both of the financing groups before the end of this month," stated Andrew J. Kacic, President of Proper Power & Energy.
Proper Power & Energy is an independent exploration and production company. The Company's operations are in Kentucky, which provides for low risk developmental drilling and production, and Utah, which the Company controls over 11,000 acres for its exploratory prospect. Renowned geophysicist and consultant to Proper Power, Robert Dunbar, believes the Utah prospect could hold up to one billion barrels of recoverable oil.
