Sprint formalizes WiMAX

Sprint announced in August that it had chosen WiMAX as the technology it would use for its future 4G network; the company now says it has formalized some of these plans. Late 2007 will see the beginning of trials in Chicago, Baltimore and Washington D.C., with actual commercial services starting sometime in the second quarter of 2008. Sprint says it eventually hopes to cover more than 100 million people with WiMAX, but it has not suggested what other cities will have access. WiMAX allows download speeds of up to 10Mbps at a distance of six miles from a transmitter.
