Sprint announces new 4G (WiMAX) markets for 2010, expands Buyback program
As expected, Sprint’s 4G WiMAX network will be launched in new markets across the US by the end of 2010.
At the moment, WiMAX is available in 27 US cities, and the new markets to get it include: New York, Boston, Denver, San Francisco, Houston, Minneapolis, Kansas City and Washington, D.C.
Sprint hopes that its 4G network will cover up to 120 million people by the year’s end – this would certainly allow it to sell the rumored HTC Supersonic to quite many customers.
“If you use a computer, a smart phone, a gaming device, a DVD player or any Wi-Fi enabled device, your online life will change for the better when you experience the Sprint 4G difference. And the value of 4G makes using Sprint 3G/4G to enhance all of your wireless devices a no-brainer. While other national wireless carriers are just talking about 4G, the Sprint Now Network already offers the reality of 4G now in a large number of markets across the country, with many more to follow this year,” declared Matt Carter, president of 4G, Sprint.
Sprint has also announced that it’s expanding its Buyback program to include cell phones from any manufacturer and any carrier. If you have an eligible wireless device, you can get a credit of up to $300 from Sprint. You can read more about the Buyback program here.
