Roadmap of Sprint's WiMAX network release leaked for the rest of 2009
If you've watched any Sprint commercials of late, you probably noticed towards the end of it that they state they're the first to bring 4G. Well, it's no secret that they've been making a push for WiMAX and a leaked roadmap shows exactly which locations will be getting it for the rest of 2009. Big name cities like Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, and Charlotte are all on the list and expected to launch this year. Interestingly enough, other major cities like New York and San Francisco are omitted. The competition of LTE is slowly knocking on Sprint's door, so it seems they're stepping it up to get a head start. If they are able to penetrate markets across the country before the other wireless carriers can even blink, they'll be in a good position in commanding the 4G competition.
