Today Sprint Nextel and Clearwire announced the official launch and availability of their WiMax wireless broadband network in a handful of markets. The largest two markets launched are Chicago, Illinois, and Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas. A number of markets are now live in North Carolina as well, including Cary, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, Greensboro, High Point, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem. Residents of these markets will be able to purchase laptop dongles that can access the WiMax network and Sprint's EVDO 3G network in areas where WiMax isn't available.

$70 Unlimited plans...

so if you can roam off of 3g when you can't get 4g, does this mean you can get $70 unlimited plans even if you mainly roam on 3g, or is there some sort of roaming cap?
There's still a cap for consumers, but business plans (tax id's and such) will be allowed unlimited 3g data as well. Off-network roaming is still limited to 300mb though.
