    I'll believe these when they actually happen. Clearwire's not been very good at sticking to predictions.

    Greensboro, NC was added as part of the Triad, meaning that in addition to Greensboro, the cities of High Point and Winston-Salem also have 4G coverage.

    also durham and chapel hill NC is covered from the raliegh area, and burlington NC is covered from the greensboro area (clear(wire) has been promoting its own service around here for like 3-4 years now wich is what sprint will be using)

    Orlando began getting 4g test signals about a month ago. A friend of mine saw the signals being picked up at the sprint store she works at on one of the Overdrive units!

    There are a lot more cities that have it but it isn't activated. It's going to be a major roll out over the next few months. They want the EVO to have 4G where ever possible.

    Sprint WiMax Tower in Los Angeles near LAX...



    I work in a building that has Sprint, and Verizon on the roof. Sprint just finished their install, I'm sure its in testing now, but won't be released until towards the end of the year I'm guessing.

    Downtown Kansas City is already live as well as a few other parts of the metro. The official statement is end of the year but Hesse leaked in a local chamber of commerce meeting that KC will officially get it when EVO is released this summer. Might be the case for other cities too.

    I imagine there is a big push to get cities announced for this year to have significant metro availability by the time EVO is released. Maybe not entire metro, but as much as they can.

    Here are some performance stats for Clear Mobile Wimax. Up to 12Mbps but expect 4-6Mbps avg. and lower if indoors and not near a site.

    How close to a site do you have to be to take advantage of WiMax? I live in Hanover, Pa which is about 20 miles SW of York PA, and 40 miles NW of Baltimore Md, both of which have 4G.

    Highest speed coverage gets about 3-5 mile radius per site, maybe more if flat with few trees. You might get signal more than that but probably not good performance. So no go for you.

    Check map here...
    Clear.com High Speed Mobile / Wireless Internet Service Provider

    If you look at Lubbock, TX as an example, you can see a circle W of town that gets about 5 mile radius with expected 'best' coverage.

    Bet ya a six pack that more pop is covered by WiMax at the end of the year than is covered by AT&T 3G today.

    Don't forget a nice chunk of Southern New Jersey has coverage! .... We're in the Phila, Pa market and it extends all the way tot he street I live on. Can't wait for the phone to go live and give it a try. (And don't forget you still have pretty fast 3G when we're not in a 4G area). This is one guy ready to jump to Sprint from AT&T when this rig arrives.

    I wouldn't bet on it but it would be hilarious if they pull that off. I think ATT 3G covers 230m population (claimed). It would be a challenge to hit 150-170m pops for WiMAX by end of year. Once you get past 150m urbanized pops, the population starts to thin out quick, meaning many more sites per 1m pops.

    But Sprint/Clear will have a lot of small towns.

    I'd guess the cities announced so far are those that have the logistics in place to perform the rollout. The biggest challenge is backhaul. They may have backhaul access lined out in some cities more than others. But they are likely doing the preliminary planning in virtually all major metros, then announcing the ones that has the logistics worked out (and the funds available to execute rollout).

    Just understand that what has been announced as "coming 2010" is a significant understatement. Much more of the population will be covered by years end that what we have been told, Sprint is going to shock many of us.

    I have the Nexus One and its a great phone but T-Mobile is weak with the 3g coverage. I'm all over the EVO if we can get some 4G!!

    A lot of these cities are going to have it by the time the EVO launches. We'll see what develops.
