re: Sprint Ups 4G LTE Markets to 58
It would be interesting to know how many of the 71 WiMAX markets were lit with a single tower simply to keep the license.-á

I live in a city that's 60.4 square miles, and we have one WiMAX site. The speeds are great, but you have to be within a mile or two of the site. We're also one of the few markets with two WiMAX operators ---áwww.fullstreamwireless.com/our... is the other -- but for whatever reason, there's no roaming agreement, which would have made WiMAX a viable option.-á

By my reckoning Sprint now has over 140 markets that they are working to deploying in the coming months.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
