It may have slipped under the radar with Verizon Wireless’ LTE network ruling the headlines, but Clear and Sprint continue the rollout of their WiMax network with an expansion of existing markets. The last 30 days has seen expansion of the WiMax deployment in the Seattle and New York. This builds upon the expansion of the Pittsburg and Philadelphia markets last month.
While no new cities have been added in some time, strengthening the backbone of the network in major cities like Seattle and New York will certainly help ease the blow to some.
Look for more news on the Sprint aspect of the network soon as Dan Hesse has a major announcement planned for the fall regarding the future of Sprint’s 4G network.
