Sprint Offering WiMax 4G On a Wholesale Basis
Sprint today announced that it has added its WiMax 4G network service and device portfolio to the list of wholesale products it offers. Sprint already allows other companies to resell its 3G wireless services and handsets. Sprint believes the addition of 4G to its wholesale offering will give companies the flexibility they require to meet their customers' needs. Sprint says that the wholesale customers can resell Sprint devices such as the HTC EVO Shift 4G, the Sierra Wireless 250U 3G/4G data card. Other 4G devices will become available in the coming months. Sprint notes that WiMax is now available in 71 markets around the country.
