Sprint's WiMAX coverage goes live for Minneapolis-St. Paul and Pittsburg

Sprint's WiMAX coverage goes live for Minneapolis-St. Paul and Pittsburg
Sprint informed us in a press release today that its WiMAX coverage has been expanded to include two more metropolitan areas. The Twin Cities region of Minneapolis-St. Paul and Pittsburgh, PA are both being blanketed by 4G-like speeds. Sprint customers and visitors there can take advantage of the promised 3-6 megabits download speeds on average, with already three devices in its lineup. The HTC EVO 4G and Samsung Epic 4G are the two smartphones capable of such downloads, and the Overdrive Mobile Hotspot gizmo beams the 4G-like speeds via Wi-Fi to up to five devices.

With this rollout, Sprint is now covering 55 metropolitan areas with its WiMAX technology, in 22 states:

California – Merced, Modesto, Stockton, Visalia; Delaware – Wilmington; Florida – Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, Orlando; Georgia – Atlanta, Milledgeville; Hawaii – Honolulu, Maui; Idaho – Boise; Illinois – Chicago; Maryland – Baltimore; Massachusetts – Boston; Michigan – Grand Rapids; Minnesota – Minneapolis-St. Paul; Missouri – Kansas City, St. Louis; New York – Rochester, Syracuse; Nevada – Las Vegas; North Carolina – Charlotte, Greensboro (includes High Point and Winston-Salem), Raleigh (includes Cary, Chapel Hill and Durham); Oregon – Eugene, Portland, Salem; Pennsylvania – Harrisburg, Lancaster, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Reading, York; Rhode Island – Providence; Tennessee – Nashville; Texas – Abilene, Amarillo, Austin, Corpus Christi, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, Killeen/Temple, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, San Antonio, Waco, Wichita Falls; Utah – Salt Lake City; Virginia – Richmond; and Washington – Bellingham, Seattle, Tri-Cities, Yakima.

Anybody in the Twin Cities or Pittsburgh care to comment what download speeds are they really achieving?
