As previously announced, Sprint-Nextel Corp. on Monday rolled out WiMAX mobile broadband wireless in Austin and San Antonio, Texas.
The rollout continues for WiMAX operator Clearwire Corp. and its investors. Sprint owns a 51 percent stake in Clearwire and is acting as an MVNO on the Clearwire network. “Sprint 4G” service is positioned as the next generation of the carrier’s existing 3G services, and Sprint offers a dual-mode 3G/4G modem.
In addition to recent market launches, Sprint will begin selling in Honolulu and Maui, Hawaii, and in the Seattle/Tacoma area in early December.
