Will a WiMax plan cost more than a 3G plan?

Someone on the inside tell me please. They HAVE to have this information figured out by now!
Its currently the same price as 3g, $59.99 unlimited service while using 4g, 5GB cap when using 3G if you have a dual mode device.

Is Los Angeles not a large enough market?

where is the LA love??
Ya I dont get that either
LA sucks that's why!! Laughing
Perhaps the amount of towers necessary to cover the L.A. Metro market could cover five slightly smaller (in population markets)? L.A is spread out AND has a lot of people. I think New York City has lots of people (of course) but one should not have ...

Waiting for the Sprint haters..

Pc World just ranked Sprint for the 2nd year to have the best 3G network (now all THIS 4G COVERAGE)

Any wonder why nobodys on commercial bashing Sprint?

So wheres all the people saying "ya but theres no 4G coverage blah blah blah" lol, 27 cities with FULL 4G coverage and now this.. things looking mighty good for Sprint Smile
AT&T won best 3G network, with 2X the data speeds of Sprint. ... »
I am for Sprint all the way. It wasn't always this way. But upon my return, they have treated me like a person rather than a bottom line.
That's because nobody's using the damn thing! They're too busy canceling their service! lmao

What about rural areas....

all i'm wondering is why not also put 4G in rural areas too especially when there people who live there arent allowed many or any choices next to satellite. or if you're passing thru and you're on a call or using data and now you have to wait until you come back to civilization. i live in detroit and when you go into the burbs there are huge service gaps.
They have it in several counties and cities here outside of baltimore. And some of these counties I would consider being highly rural considering all the farmland in certain counties.
Did you really just ask this stupid question?

The cost for towers, maint, access fee's and etc, just to cover 20 customers? GTFOH

these towers only cover a X amount of area and since rural area's only cover about 1 person per square mile its not...

Seriously? Rural areas should be last if ever. Why am I going to spend money to build towers to serve fewer potential customers in Alabama (where I am) before New York City? I wouldn't. That would make no sense. It's a business not a charity. Th...

plans to cover 120 Americans by the end of 2010.

must be a typo - consider "plans to cover 12 Americans by the end of 2010." Laughing
AHAHAHA!! That soo funny man! I can't believe you said that!!! *sigh* Really? They let people like this guy use computers....why?

Why isn't San Diego on this list?

I just don't understand....

We're a MAJOR city when it comes to cellular technology.

Hell, Quallcomm is 15min away from my house.

Got damn be patient!

We all felt this way when the first 27 markets were launched. Now that they are launching more, there will be more upset people that didn't see their city on the list. But in due time you will see your city especially if its a ...

Might want to edit that to what I assume is "120 MILLION Americans."
