Sprint Chooses WiMax For High-speed Wireless

After evaluating other technologies, Sprint Nextel has chosen WiMax as its vehicle technology for the new high-speed wireless network that it plans to roll out in late 2007. According to Sprint chief executive Gary Forsee, Intel will provide the equipment for the network while Samsung and Motorola will develop phones and mobile devices that will run on WiMax. The company plans to devote $1 billion for the project in 2007 and up to $2 billion for the following year. The new network is expected to produce download speeds of between 2 mbps and 4 mbps, a range similar to an average broadband service.
