Another month, another bunch of cities with access to WiMAX. clwr today announced its expansion into several new markets across the country.
First of all, they added Wilmington, Delaware to a growing regional network that includes Philadelphia as well as large parts of southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey as well as the original Baltimore market that Sprint opened what seems like such a long time ago. Wilmington itself isn't too large, adding just 240K people in an area roughly bounded in the north by Talleyville, the south by Ogletown, the southeast by New Castle, the west by Stanton, and the east to Edgemoor and Claymont.
Down in Florida, they added Jacksonville in the northeast of the state, covering some 866K residents of the metropolitan area. Out in California, coverage was added for 616K people in Stockton and another 500K people in Modesto. Like in Florida, the big population centers are still in the works. And in western Michigan they turned up service in Grand Rapids.
