by the end of the year? They claim that they currently cover 40 million and the goal is to cover over 120 million by the end of the year. If you really think about it, that triples the current coverage in only 7ish months. Here are the announced cities that are getting coverage, and how much population is in their entire Metro area. Its very important to know that an entire metro area will not get coverage. I'm sure they have a percentage goal they want to meet (in each metro), but I don't know what it is. Confirmed upcoming cities: New York City, 19,000,000 people Los Angeles 13,000,000 people San Francisco 4,300,000 people Denver 2,500,000 people Miami 5,500,000 people Boston 4,500,000 people Grand Rapids 750,000 people Minneapolis 3,250,000 people Kansas City 2,000,000 people St Louis 2,800,000 people Cincinnati 2,200,000 people Cleveland 2,000,000 people Pittsburgh 2,400,000 people Houston 5,900,000 people Salt Lake City 1,100,000 people Washington DC 5,500,000 people That comes out to approximately 76.6 million people that are due to get covered. But as I said previously, that assumes that the ENTIRE Metropolitan area gets coverage, and that's FAR from what will happen. I would imagine covering 75% of the people in the metro area would be a hell of an accomplishment still, and that would put it at approximate 57.5 million people. So just for fun they claim 40 million are covered, another 57.5 million will gain WiMax coverage (using my generous 75% estimate), so where do the other 20+ million come from? My personal conclusion is that there's no way in hell they can reach a goal of 120 million people with 4G coverage by years end.
