Clearwire made some recent announcements that lay out the current 4G coverage cities along with the metro areas that are scheduled to come online.
Sprint’s 4G coverage map has, for some reason, been a non-friendly source for tracking the 4G coverage areas. And lists like this seem to be about the most comprehensive at providing the 4G coverage areas.
So here’s what we know so far:
Current Sprint / Clearwire 4G coverage metro areas:
CLEAR 4G service is currently available in 52 markets across the United States, including: Boston, Mass.; Daytona Beach and Jacksonville, Fla.; Providence, R.I.; Wilmington, Del.; Grand Rapids, Mich.; Syracuse and Rochester, N.Y.; Atlanta and Milledgeville, Ga.; Baltimore, Md.; Boise, Idaho; Chicago, Ill.; Las Vegas, Nev.; St. Louis and Kansas City, Mo.; Philadelphia, Harrisburg, Reading, Lancaster and York, Pa.; Charlotte, Raleigh, and Greensboro, NC; Honolulu and Maui, Hawaii; Seattle, Tri-Cities, Yakima and Bellingham, Wash.; Salem, Portland and Eugene, Ore.; Merced, Visalia, Modesto and Stockton, Calif.; Dallas/Ft.
