Sprint goes wholesale with its 4G WiMAX network
At first only a few devices will be available to take advantage of Sprint's new wholesale venture. On the phone side, we will have the HTC Detail , which is actually the HTC EVO Shift 4G, but for wholesale customers.
For computer access to the 4G network, Sprint will provide customers who buy access to its network in bulk with the Sierra Wireless 250U data card, while additional phones, data cards, hotspot devices and even fixed access will be provided further down the road.
"Customers looking for a large and established 4G ecosystem should consider Sprint, as we offer access to more than 120 ecosystem partners, including chipset vendors, device and equipment manufacturers, applications developers, machine-to-machine solutions providers and more. With Sprint 4G, the possibilities for our customers are endless. 4G is another fine example of the complete solutions we offer to help our customers harness their full potential.", says Matt Carter, president of Sprint's Wholesale Solutions and New Ventures.
Sprint's 4G network currently covers 71 major markets throughout the US, and offers 3-6Mbps download speeds on average. The offer above makes it the first wireless carrier in the US to offer its 4G network to wholesale customers.
