With the Sprint EVO 4G scheduled for release in just a few days, Sprint and Clearwire have decided to roll out WiMAX to another city. The greater Kansa City area is the newest metro area to take advantage of the 4G coverage. Clearwire also saw fit to expand coverage in one of the first cities to benefit from WiMAX 4G.
Baltimore now has a larger coverage area for 4G. The WiMAX coverage now expands all the way to Washington, DC. The coverage in the region actually reaches a 725 square mile area, which is quite impressive. It extends to cities suck as College Park, MD and Alexandria, VA. As always, those in the areas with Clearwire’s 4G WiMAX can subscribe to the service for $60 a month, or just use an EVO 4G when it releases at the end of the week.
Clearwire intends to continue rolling out WiMAX coverage to cities in other states. Those states include California, Delaware, Florida, Michigan, Missouri, Oregon, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, and Washington . That is, of course, in addition to other promised cities such as New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area. The area covered with Sprint’s 4G network is depressingly sparse, especially considering the fact that the carrier’s first 4G phone is just about set for launch. Perhaps, if the phone’s popularity lives up to the hype, Sprint and Clearwire might make these rollouts happen at a bit faster pace. Paying $10 a month extra with the promise of 4G sometimes soon might be a bit too much for some users.
