Sprint takes its WiMax act on the road to San Francisco on December 28th
Sprint will officially start offering its 4G WiMax service (Thanks ITU!) starting on December 28th to more cities. San Francisco, Oakland, San Jose, Silicon Valley and other areas on the West Coast will be receiving Sprint's 4G service.

On the video below, Sprint compares its 4G service to an 8 lane super-highway and shows off some of the devices that are WiMax enabled. The carrier currently offers the HTC EVO 4G, the Samsung Epic 4G and the Sprint Overdrive which lets you turn a Wi-Fi enabled device into a 4G running powerhouse. Before the new additions, WiMax was running in 70 markets, offering web browsing speeds as much as 10 times faster than 3G.
