Thought Sprint’s WiMax service was only going to be limited to small, rural towns? Nah, didn’t think so. You knew it was going to hit the big cities like NYC and San Francisco first, didn’t you? Well now Sprint has confirmed that New York will be getting WiMax service when it’s rolled out in 2008.
Samsung will be building the infrastructure Sprint needs to operate the WiMax network in NYC. Though no official completion date has been given, test markets are supposed to go live as early as Q4 2007, so we’ll see what Sprint has up its sleeve. I really hope Sprint and Samsung whip up some kind of USB-device that’s OS X compatible. I wouldn’t mind using WiMax at the park across the street.
