With competition looming down the road, Sprint is gearing up to get a step ahead in the 4G race. Out of all the major wireless providers, Sprint is the only one available offering 4G data services – everyone else is hastily building their foundations for an eventual launch. In a bid to further itself in the race, Sprint Nextel is reducing its monthly price for its CDMA/mobile WiMax service by $10 – now set at $59.99. That’s really impressive when you consider other providers normally offering 3G data services at that exact pricing level. This is actually the second $10 cut in less than five months – the last one occurred back in August. This aggressive price drop will probably garner a lot of attention with consumers who are eager to jump into the 4G foray for a reasonable cost. If news about building WiMax towers at Walmart locations are true, this latest move will help catapult Sprint to a healthy position.
