Good news for San Francisco Bay Area residents, Sprint 4G is now available in your locale! Right on time, the WiMAX service officially launched today in San Francisco, San Jose, Palo Alto and Oakland. Residents should expect 4G coverage similar to their Los Angeles counterparts who had their 4G service switched on earlier this month.
With the rollout of WiMAX in San Francisco, the WiMAX network is now available in 71 cities nationwide including major hubs such as Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas and New York City. The mobile broadband service promises download speeds of 3-9 Mbps and is compatible with a range of devices including the EVO 4G and Epic 4G smartphones and the Overdrive 3G/4G mobile hotspot. If you already own a 4G device, then watch it closely as that 4G icon should finally light up today. If are not a proud owner of a 4G device, then head on out to your Sprint store and scoop one up.
