The article focuses on the decision of Sprint to deploy Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) on a band of 2.5 gigahertz spectrum it controls and a new bid record for advanced wireless services. It is believed that WiMAX will be used as a competitive alternative to wire-borne broadband services for general consumer Internet access services.
