More Sprint WiMax Cities are on the Horizon

The CTIA wireless trade show is currently in progress and that means there will be plenty of announcements from wireless carriers and phone manufacturers.

One of the big announcements today was from my hometown company, Sprint. They've been rolling out WiMax to limited markets, but today announced that the service will be coming to other cities soon. The WiMax service is currently available in 27 cities, including Baltimore, Seattle, Las Vegas and Philadelphia. In the not too distant future it will be available in Boston, Denver, Kansas City, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco and Washington, D.C

Needless to say the Kansas City rollout is high on my list of geek projects for the year. Why am I excited about WiMax? It's the
up-to-12 megabit/second download speeds and the fact that Sprint has stated the plans will have unlimited data. That's paradise for someone like me!
