said by RadioDoc:Pretty broad statement.....what "can't they run?" Let me guess, you live in a coverage hole and can't get service, therefore they "can't run their PCS network right."
They can't even run their PCS network right around here.
If ever offered a breath mint - take it.
This service could get costly quickly
One subscription could cover multiple devices, so a family could have just one account and add and remove devices, managing their own account. The cost would go up with each added device, he said.So, if you have a laptop for home use, and a mobile PC/PDA for work and traveling around the city, and the kid has a desktop at home, the costs keep going up. Doesn't sound like a competitor to DSL or Cable for most people. But for salesmen and other business people it may be a better deal than 3G data connections from Verizon and others.

said by ignatiuskc:Sprint only concentrates on urban/high population areas, the exact areas that have broadband already. Clearwire has a very long way to go, where is it anywhere in the Northeast?
Fixed WiMax might be able to do 10-30 miles but mobile WiMax will do about 6 miles in real world. Far better than 300' on WiFi and better performing than EVDO.
I'd rather have true mobile data 2-4Mbps at $50/month available metrowide and anywhere I travel than 50Mbps wired cable/FIOS at same price.
Rural fixed should also be great. Sounds like Sprint will focus on population centers while Clearwire will focus mostly on rural. They are expected to roam on each other eventually.
