Sprint Sticks To XOHM Launch Plan, Narrows Dates
Sprint today confirmed that its WiMax plans are proceeding as scheduled. Sprint employees are currently testing networks in Baltimore, Chicago, and Washington, however they have extended their test radius to suburban areas. In a few months, Sprint will allow vendors and selected "friendly" users to test devices on the network. Sprint expects to commercially launch to the network in those three cities mid-second quarter - late April or May. At launch Sprint will offer card-based modems and laptops with WiMax built in, but other manufacturers like Nokia will offer XOHM capable devices separately. Sprint will then roll out service in additional cities much slower than past network upgrades.
