Sprint and Clearwire Launch WiMax in a Slew of Markets
Today Sprint Nextel and Clearwire announced the official launch and availability of their WiMax wireless broadband network in a handful of markets.

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.
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.
