Sprint to roll out national WiMax network

Posted by Xavier Ashe on October 27, 2005

Sprint gets it — the future’s in not necessarily cellular high speed wireless communications,
something like WiMax (or WiBro, Flash OFDM, etc.), per
se. PCS Intel also has it that apparently Sprint’s coming up roses with laying the groundwork for next-gen wireless
broadband because of their DoD deal; looks like they’re planning a nation-wide rollout with an even broader coverage
base than their existing cellphone network (which shouldn’t be too hard, considering how long-range WiMax is). Of
course, being that the WiMax standard is still in the oven, so to speak, by the time the
DoD takes the iDEN network off their hands (and
supposedly switches up bands), they’ll be able to rebuild their spectrum with whichever kind of network they please,
WiMax, 3G, 4G, or otherwise.
