Today Clearwire will add the greater Seattle metropolitan area to its WiMax footprint, which now covers just over 30 million people across the U.S. The Seattle coverage area reaches from from Tacoma to Bellingham and from the Puget Sound to Issaquah, blanketing some 2,000 square miles in the region. WiMax services will be sold by both Clearwire and Sprint. Clearwire and Sprint also launched WiMax service in Honolulu and Maui, Hawaii. According to Clearwire, it now covers 27 major U.S. cities. Last Clearwire expanded is brick-and-mortal retail presence across many of the markets it already serves.

Can someone look up Houston's date

I need to know when Houston or Denver would get WiMax, Thanks for any info. Wink
Here's the phone to Clear's customer service: 1-888-495-5553
here you go boss...

Just thought I'd start a running list of the 4G markets, for quick reference and to consolidate both the Clearwire and Sprint 4G announcements.

(* indicates this city is live on either Clear, Sprint 4G or both)

buildout is as fast as thier network

holy crap... they are going really fast on this build out. the coverage for hawaii is practically everywhere and so is seattle area. i cant wait for this to come to florida and central PA and NYC
I think NYC would be last because of the people there. They want to make sure its stable before the release, IMO. They would have to make sure it can handle the heavy usage.

So can...

I upgrade from my regular Sprint 3G data card to a WiMax one? Confused
Yes, data cards upgrade just like phones, so every 22 mnths in most cases. So if you've had your card for a couple years you should be fine.
