Clearwire, Sprint Turn Up WiMAX in Central PA

May 3rd, 2010 by · 1 Comment

WiMAX operator clwr has expanded its coverage again, this time into central Pennsylvania.  Now formally under the WiMAX umbrella are the cities of Harrisburg, Lancaster, Reading, and York.  Total coverage area across these markets adds up to 271 square miles and some three quarters of a million people.  This coverage goes well with the company's existing Philadelphia and Baltimore markets, and looks like this across the region:

Clearwire's largest shareholder Sprint followed up with an immediate move into the territory, playing up both its Overdrive 3G/4G dongle and the promised release of the HTC EVO 4G later this year.  I just wish we knew what they mean by 'later'.

New markets still expected to come online this year for both Clearwire and Sprint include Boston, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, Pittsburgh, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, St. Louis and Washington, D.C.  No doubt there will be some smaller satellite markets like todays as well.

    The launch of EVO is set for June in both Sprint’s 3G and 4G cities. I would not be suprised to see a round of new 4G cities launched prior or in conjunction with the EVO rollout.
