Sprint Will Test WiMax In Chicago, DC

Sprint today announced they will test WiMax equipment by rolling out service from two separate vendors in separate cities. Sprint has assigned their two launch partners one city each - Motorola will cover Chicago while Samsung will cover Washington DC. After an evaluation period, Sprint will decide whether the trials were satisfactory or if the carrier needs to add a third equipment supplier. Nortel, Nokia and other large manufacturers are waiting in the wings. It is unlikely Samsung or Motorola need to be worried about losing; both will probably earn rights to cover additional cities. Instead each company is competing to win the rights to New York City, which Sprint considers a market both because of its status as well as the difficult coverage situations it presents.
