Sprint confirms WiMax shutdown for November 6, 2015

Sprint has confirmed what we reported over the weekend, that they will shut down their WiMax network on November 6, 2015. Devices that support both WiMax and Sprint's 3G network will continue to function on the 3G network.

Sprint announced earlier this year that they would stop supporting WiMax by the end of 2015. Sprint is encouraging their Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) to notify their customers about the shutdown, helping them with transitions and going over their options.

Will you be sad to see WiMax go? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
