Sprint announced its plans to launch WiMax in several more markets in 2010. Sprint plans on adding Boston, Denver, Kansas City, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco and Washington D.C.
It will add to the 27 cities where Sprint 4G service is already available. WiMax is wireless mobile broadband that delivers up to 10 times faster that 3G technology and is supposed to cover up to 120 million people by the end of 2010.
“If you use a computer, a smart phone, a gaming device, a DVD player or any Wi-Fi enabled device, your online life will change for the better when you experience the Sprint 4G difference. And the value of 4G makes using Sprint 3G/4G to enhance all of your wireless devices a no-brainer,” said Matt Carter, president of 4G. “While other national wireless carriers are just talking about 4G, the Sprint Now Network already offers the reality of 4G now in a large number of markets across the country, with many more to follow this year.”
Transportation companies can access 4G speeds to improve customer experience, increase customer safety, support on-board marketing, monitor and manage fleet resources and enable wireless transactions. Home healthcare providers can implement higher-quality remote patient monitoring and faster patient data transfer. Public safety professionals can step up to another level in anytime-access to critical information, ability to document incidents, resource management and monitoring.
