Sprint to Launch Commercial WiMAX Network In 2Q 2008
May 22, 2007, 9:43 AM by (staff)
Today Sprint further confirmed its plans to launch WiMAX networks in several markets in the U.S. Sprint had previously announced three trial cities (Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.) to test its WiMAX networks beginning late this year. In a press release today, Sprint noted that it will launch its WiMAX mobile broadband service commercially starting in the second quarter of 2008 after the successful completion of those trials. Sprint expects to cover up to 100 million people with its WiMAX network, but did not say how soon additional cities would be added.
Sprint Can Commence WiMax Shutdown
A Massachusetts court has given Sprint permission to turn off its WiMax network in stages over the next two months. Sprint will turn WiMax off in 16 cities, including New York, today, with 39 more to follow on February 29, and the remaining 25 cities on March 31.
Sprint to Kill Off WiMax Once and for All On Nov. 6, 2015
Sprint today confirmed it will permanently shutter its WiMax network on or around November 6, 2015. The company had previously said it would operate the failed 4G network until "the end of 2015." Sprint said it has identified 6,000 "redundant sites that we expect to decommission and terminate the underlying leases," as part of the process, which will save the company some money.
Sprint's WiMax Shutdown May Halt Service for Charities
Sprint plans to deactivate its WiMax network on Nov. 6, but some charities say the change will eliminate internet service for some 300,000 Americans altogether.
Sprint Expands LTE and Spark to More Markets
Sprint today increased the footprint of its LTE 4G network and its Sprint Spark service. Sprint LTE is now available in 41 new cities around the country, bringing the total to 443 cities and 225 million people.

Sprint offers employees of my company a 25% discount, but almost everyone chooses T-Mobile (with no discount), Verizon (with no discount), or Cingular (11% discount).
I just hope Sprint is working on something good, because people in my area are leaving them in groves, complaining of dropped calls, poor coverage, bad customer service, and even poor handset selection. People from ...
