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.

Sprint to Kill Off WiMax Once and for All On Nov. 6, 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.
