Sprint has announced the addition of five new cities to its WiMax 4G coverage area. This is an addition of approximately 3.25 million more people with 4G coverage to help meet Sprint's goals of 120 million across the country by the end of 2010. The new cities to add to the expanding WiMax list are:
- Stockton, California
- Modesto, California
- Jacksonville, Florida
- Wilmington, Delaware
- Grand Rapids, Michigan
According to Sprint, it now has 4G service in 48 U.S. markets, and is quick to point out that it is the first U.S. carrier to actually launch any 4G technology. Still slated for 4G coverage this year are Boston, Miami, New York (which already is seeing some WiMax), and Los Angeles (which has seen a tad, too). You can see the coverage list in the full press release, after the break.
