Sprint's XOHM WiMax service slips back to October

Remember just last week, when someone at Sprint said they’d still be launching their XOHM WiMax service in September? Turns out “September” is just a fancy way to spell “October” around the Sprint campus, with the company announcing that XOHM will launch in Baltimore come October 8th.

Don’t cruise out to Baltimore to try to bask in the glorious rays of WiMax right off the bat, however. According to PhoneNews, the October 8th debut won’t be a commercial launch, with only select individuals gettin’ the chance to paw at the service immediately after the announcement.

Once the switches are flipped in Baltimore, expansions are in the works for Washington, DC., Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Philadelphia, and Providence, with the latter four not expected until at least 2009.
