If Sprint says there's WiMax coverage in SLC, and that was your experience, then I can understand your frustration. But Salt Lake City is hardly typical to the point that its coverage issues can be extrapolated everywhere. It's a city of 200,000 people in a state of less than 3 million. That's not a knock on where you live, but the reality is that providers will focus their coverage more on where more people live. In that light, coverage in San Francisco and Silicon Valley are MUCH more likely to be "typical" of the promised WiMax coverage areas. This is not to discount your experience, but your experience and your location does not by itself make for a typical case.
