Sprint, Clearwire, and Comcast to expand 4G coverage
All three 4G providers--Sprint, Clearwire, and Comcast--are expanding their 4G coverage under their own brands to up to 18 additional markets.
4G is slowly gaining traction--that is if Sprint, Clearwire, and Comcast have their way. The companies have announced that all three will expand their 4G coverage to several more markets this summer. They include Jacksonville and Daytona, Fla; Kansas City, Kan.; Nashville; St. Louis; Salt Lake City; Merced, Modesto, Stockton, and Visalia, Calif.; Wilmington, Del.; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Eugene, Ore.; and Yakima and Tri-Cities, Wash. All three will market their 4G services under their own brands, of course.
If you don't see your city on the list, don't fret--the companies have promised to further their expand 4G coverage beyond the above list. Sprint in particular has said that it hopes to expand to San Francisco and New York by the end of 2010.
