    Sprint 4G Coming to Atlanta, Portland and Las Vegas in August

    Sprint 4G Coming to Atlanta in August
    Sprint 4G Will Soon Offer Atlanta Residents Wireless Network Connectivity Three to Five Times Faster Than Today's 3G from Any Wireless Network
    ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul. 21, 2009-- Sprint (NYSE:S) today announced that turbo-charged Sprint 4G mobile broadband will be available in Atlanta beginning in August. This will make Atlanta residents among the first in America to experience the lightning-fast speeds of the first wireless 4G network from a national carrier.

    Sprint 4G will offer a hot spot the size of a city to both businesses and consumers. Customers will experience fast mobile broadband speeds across Atlanta provided by a proven nationwide mobile broadband carrier. The first national carrier to test, launch and market wireless 4G technology, Sprint was also the first to offer access to both 3G and 4G with the 3G/4G USB Modem U300. Atlanta consumers will be able to access super-fast mobile broadband speeds on the go, and business customers will also be able to take advantage of Sprint’s ability to combine its 4G capability into its product offering along with its extensive suite of wireless-wireline integration and Global IP solutions, as well as the nation’s most dependable 3G network*. Additional information about Sprint 4G launch plans and services in Atlanta will be announced in August.

    Sprint 4G customers will step up to wireless connections that deliver peak downlink speeds of more than 10 Mbps and average downlink speeds of 3-6 Mbps. Sprint 4G speeds and capabilities are three to five times faster than the 3G service offered by any national wireless carrier today, based on average download speeds.

    Sprint made history by launching 4G in Baltimore in September 2008, then by launching the first dual-mode 3G/4G USB Modem device in December. The roll-out of 4G in other major markets in 2009 continues to deliver on Sprint’s promise to offer a faster Internet experience than any other national wireless service provider in cities across the nation. In addition to Atlanta, Las Vegas and Portland in August, Sprint also plans to deploy Sprint 4G in these markets in 2009: Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Ft. Worth, Honolulu, Philadelphia and Seattle.

    Sprint is harnessing the power of 4G as the largest shareholder of Clearwire with a 51 percent stake in this independent company that is building the WiMAX network. Sprint is the only national wireless carrier to offer 4G services on the Clearwire WiMAX network.

    Should be in Philly by years end as well. I've noticed some panels being changed out. Only maybe 20-30% of Sprint's total sites though.

    How is this different from WiMaX? Is this LTE? And how does Sprint plan to market this vs. their CLEAR service?
