Sprint Will Test WiMax In Chicago, DC
Oct 13, 2006, 2:02 PM by (staff)
Sprint today announced they will test WiMax equipment by rolling out service from two separate vendors in separate cities. Sprint has assigned their two launch partners one city each - Motorola will cover Chicago while Samsung will cover Washington DC. After an evaluation period, Sprint will decide whether the trials were satisfactory or if the carrier needs to add a third equipment supplier. Nortel, Nokia and other large manufacturers are waiting in the wings. It is unlikely Samsung or Motorola need to be worried about losing; both will probably earn rights to cover additional cities. Instead each company is competing to win the rights to New York City, which Sprint considers a market both because of its status as well as the difficult coverage situations it presents.
