Sprint to add 4G markets

Wireless provider Sprint on Tuesday announced that it will launch its WiMAX mobile broadband service concurrently in Atlanta, GA, Portland, OR and Las Vegas, NV starting in August. Sprint says the new generation network will allow users to access data between three and five times faster than current 3G networks, with peak download speeds faster than 10Mbps, and averages of between 3 and 6Mbps.

The Sprint news follows Clearwire's announcement that it has launched its CLEAR mobile broadband service in Las Vegas. Clearwire already offers CLEAR in Portland and Atlanta. Sprint holds a 51 percent share of Clearwire and launched the first 4G network in Baltimore in September.

    4G? Oh, please..

    I guess not all 4G monikers are created equal. In Finland and Sweden, for example, 4G means 100 Mbps. Sprint thinks it's less than 10 Mbps. But, hey, it's "4G", right?
