Indianapolis to get WiMax wireless access

March 27, 2007

Sprint Nextel Corp. plans to roll out WiMax wireless Internet access in Indianapolis in May next year, the Orlando, Fla., company said yesterday.

WiMax broadens wireless access beyond local hot spots.

The exact coverage area isn’t known, said company spokesman John Polivka. But access will begin in Indianapolis’ center, then be expanded to some suburban areas. “It’s more urban than suburban,” he said.

Indianapolis is among 19 cities where Sprint Nextel plans to add the service by the end of 2008.

Sprint Nextel will place the equipment on existing cell towers, Polivka said.
