Mobile WiMax Arrives - But Still Not In Portland


"Baltimore got the first taste of commercial WiMAX today, when Sprint
launched service there...

At one time, Portland had been slated to be the first city to get
mobile WiMAX. Intel and Clearwire have been testing WiMAX here for
many months, but for unexplained reasons service has never arrived.
The company continues plugging away, though, and says it'll launch
here sometime by year's end."

I live in Baltimore. Why do I want this?

Convenience more than anything else - pretty good wireless bandwidth anywhere in the city (not sure about your specific coverage) from any device that has or can connect to a WiMax antenna.
