    So I was looking at the Sprint 4G coverage map and they have pretty much all of my city blanketed as having 4G coverage... but I wondered just how realistic that was... so I went to the Clearwire website to look at their coverage map.

    CLEAR WiMAX 4G Coverage Area Map

    I think this gives a much more "clear" view of just how your coverage will be. For intance, half of my block (luckily the half where my apartment resides) is listed as having Best Clear Coverage whereas the other half just has Clear Coverage.

    Just thought it would be useful for everyone to be able to have a better idea of your 4G coverage. Unless I'm wrong and Sprint and Clear's coverage are not necessarily the same thing.

    So, are you covered?

    I cannot believe there is no coverage at all in California-- the most technological state in the the nation. I really hope they turn on 4G here before launch.

    This map is very incomplete. I started using Wimax in Baltimore when it was branded as "Xohm" but when they rebranded it as "Clear" it never showed up on the map. Hopefully they get things straightened out.

    Also, if you look at Sprint's coverage map, you can filter it to only show Wimax coverage.

    Ok, the whole GT campus is covered in "best" coverage. Hopefully it is better than the NONEXISTENT 3G coverage in my apartment!

    Looks like people in Baltimore won't have to wait much longer- Insider's View of CLEAR 4G's Baltimore Launch Party

    Disclosure- Hey everyone, I actually work with Clearwire, but it seems there is a lot of good conversation about 4G going on at androidforums. I'm looking forward to joining in!

    OK, I take it then that the 4G footprint already in place with Sprint is being expanded by this launch? I ask because I live in Columbia and per Sprint's maps, am 2 blocks or so just outside the closest 4G coverage (it's like a mile wide circle of non-coverage surrounded by coverage with me just at the boundary) but there are 3 Clear antennas within 1 mle of my home. So I'm looking for these to fire up and fill that gap :)

    So does sprint own any of their own radios? Or do they lease them all?

    Sprint owns 51% of Clearwire.

    There's no obstacles to affect the coverage over the lake. One tower can cover a much greater area over the water than it can over land.

    Does the 4G experience mean anything when you search the Sprint site for Sprint stores? I have about 15 Sprint sellers within a 20 mile radius, but only the ones within Philly's Wimax range show 4G experience. This is, the one's in PA I believe. The one's in NJ, I don't believe. But since it says 4G experience, I'm wondering if that's a clue to places where Sprint's confirmed 4g signal or just estimates 4G signal based on a tower location.

    Wouldn't make much sense to say the store has 4G experience then have people show up and not be able to show them actual 4G.
