Really? They do it in Snohomish, Washington. But not ANY city in Michigan!?
Wow, no-wonder I never was with sprint.

Phoenix? I'm not sure what ideal conditions are with wimax but with it being very flat in the valley and most city blocks built like grids it would seem like an ideal place. I would hope it should pop up on that list sometime soon. As I've dug around it seems other companies are using the technology in the area but only for business use.And of course are... Other companies. Clear... What gives?

The logistics to rollout is easier in some cities more than others such as terrain, backhaul availability, etc. NYC was announced to get this year but with all the tall buildings, it's a big challenge. They also need to arrange backhaul suppliers, which may be more challenging in some cities than others.
Both Sprint and Verizon 3G/EVDO rollout several years ago wasn't in order of 'tech' or large cities. They decide on many logistical parameters to do the rollout.

Why is NYC a big challenge because of tall buildings? I see Wimax antenna's all over the city and boroughs. I just don't have a device to test it out but the fact that Sprint is holding a EVO party in NYC tells me NYC is live and ready to go.
How pathetic that I stare at cellular antennas

^NYC could be mostly ready now. Just saying there are more challenges with Manhattan. I'd bet when EVO is released, at least a portion of NYC will be up an running. KC was announced to be end of 2010 but now they are saying 'summer'. Sounds like Clear is ahead of schedule, at least for some cities.

Of course this is wishful thinking similar to the thinking of when they say San Francisco they actually mean "The Bay Area", since I'm down in lowly San Jose

Most of Louisiana is still stuck with 1x. Sprint has ignored Louisiana for years. Why bother selling the EVO in this state at all?Palm Pilot > Palm V > Palm Tungsten T > Palm Treo 650 > Palm Centro > Palm Pre > HTC Hero > Palm Pre > iPhone 4 > LG Quantum > Nokia Lumia 920

After hearing about the 4G plans. I am switching to Verizon if the prices are that ridiculously expensive.
I believe that they should stick to give the service free 3g and 4g with the $30.00 data plan because 1. they are not in all the cities and 2. nobody know yet if there is really a 4G speed (normally never run as marketed).
If sprint start getting greedy I am sure they will not get as much people switching.
Still keeping my heart in Verizon and incredible, if I sprint screw with the services.

NYC (metro) probably won't be officially announced til the end of the year but I'd bet many parts of the city will be unofficially up and running when EVO is launched.
