Sprint & Walmart together in erecting WiMax towers?
With so many Walmart locations throughout the country, it’s very hard to not find one that’s close to your vicinity. With that in mind, Sprint is probably devising a plan in further expanding its nationwide rollout of their WiMax network. One new rumor floating right now is the fancying idea of having WiMax towers being built on top of all Walmart locations. There are a lot of winners with this move – Sprint won’t have to worry about paying tons of money to erect towers and zoning permission. As for the world’s largest retailer, they’d probably be compensated by Sprint for the space they would be renting out. Sprint has been advised to consider before going forward with the notion because of the amount of stores located near one another. This aggressive consideration would really place WiMax ahead of any LTE competition that’s expected to arrive soon. Finally, with WiMax capable handsets scheduled for release later this year, this would ultimately place Sprint in a good position to have everything prepared.
