Sprint 4G ATL Port Vegas

Sprint this afternoon switched on its promised WiMAX-based 4G Internet service in Atlanta, Las Vegas and Portland. The wide-area wireless gives users peak download speeds of more than 10Mbps and real-world averages of between 3Mbps and 6Mbps. Subscriptions vary depending on whether the device is static and range from $25 per month for a fixed-in-place connection to $30 for mobile and $50 for both services at once.

The provider has also reiterated plans for new 4G hardware within the next year, including its first- ever WiMAX phone as well as a WiMAX-only notebook data card and more notebooks with built-in support. Several extra cities, particularly in Texas, should also receive access before the end of the year.
