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

re: Sprint Ups 4G LTE Markets to 58 By my reckoning Sprint now has over 140 markets that they are working to deploying in the coming months.
