Sprint and Clearwire today announced that the companies have launched the faster 4G wireless broadband service in both the Pittsburgh and the Minneapolis/St. Paul markets. According to Sprint, their 4G service is now available in 55 cities, and the companies still have some major market launched planned before the end of the year, including New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Miami, Cincinnati, and Cleveland. Sprint this week posted new videos discussing their upcoming launch in New York (where service is already live in several areas). Apparently (see similar AT&T video), talking to your network guys on a NYC rooftop means you're super serious about wireless broadband.
I just looked at clears coverage map and there is a giant whole over Downtown Minneapolis. I hope the 100,000+ people who work downtown don't need higher speeds. This seems like a major oversight for sprint/clear that I hopes gets fixed soon.
Sprint can NOT sell in Grand Rapids MI. Grand Rapids is a partner network not even owned by Sprint. Instead it is owned by: »www.ipcswirelessinc.com/ and their agreement- which is still being used gives IPCS the full right to sell in those markets. Until Sprint fully merges them into their company/brand of Sprint they will NEVER be allowed to sell in those markets with IPCS. If you took the time you would know that. It's always on the news here when Sprint launches something new there under their brand; especially with Virgin Mobile and Boost. They had to stop selling there. -- www.twopugsbrand.com Kosher, Vegan, and Organic Certified Dog and Cat treats/foods and other products! www.etsy.com/shop/snakx4u/ Organic, Kosher, Gluten Free, Vegan Human Baked Goods
That was to BUY. Not finalized. If it was finialized iPCS website still wouldn't be releasing Press Releases and such regarding their shareholders sueing the company; as that company is already gone.
Now you should check your facts before you spout off at me. -- www.twopugsbrand.com Kosher, Vegan, and Organic Certified Dog and Cat treats/foods and other products! www.etsy.com/shop/snakx4u/ Organic, Kosher, Gluten Free, Vegan Human Baked Goods
Nah, my facts are checked and correct. Unfortunately you don't know what you're talking about. Sprint has bought iPCS. They own it, its done. Flat out, bottom line, end of story. I don't know why their website is still up, but if you'll take the time to read, you'd notice that all of the "news" there on the front page is from 2009. Seems like that should have been your first clue...
...will report back on whether we've got 4G turned on as a test network in Denver. I know T-Mobile is doing a pretty good job with their HSPA network here; friends are getting 3 Mbps down on their phones. HSPA+ will be here soon too...as will, I'm guessing, be Verizon LTE.

What about the RURAL customers who have NO options???? Yes, they would not have as many potential customers per square mile, but I wonder how many people with DSL or Cable would want to jump to WiMax in a metro area???
I don't know, but sooner or later these companies will figure out that rural communities are chomping at the BIT for some form of broadband connectivity. The hardwire guys have all but forgotten about rural customers....

I'm still waiting to get the 20.00 a month additional for "premium Data Service" that I getting charged fro by Sprint. You activate an HTC EVO automatically you are charged an additional 10.00 a month for "premium data" $g capability is being rolled out to locations that will not place a load on the Sprint infrastructure while the rest of the people who are paying for this service and not able to enjoy it fume!!
