It looks like New Yorkers may finally get 4G next month. The high-speed wireless network, run by Clearwire but also available from Sprint, Time Warner Cable and various other companies, has been up and down in New York City for weeks as Clearwire has been testing it, Sprint spokeswoman Stephanie Vinge told me on Twitter.
Walking through the Queens Center Mall today, though, I found a Clearwire store promising to open in September. They could open the store as an information kiosk without a network available, but it would help pay the rent if they could actually sell modems.
To double check, I emailed both Sprint and Clearwire. Clearwire spokeswoman Susan Johnston said, "In advance of Clearwire's commercial 4G launches we regularly conduct operational readiness activities, which include preparing our local market retail presence. These activities are underway in a number of cities, including NYC. As we stated during our recent 2Q earnings call, we expect to launch commercial service in NYC by the end of the year, but we are not providing additional details at this time."
Looks like some white paint at the Queens Center Mall may be providing additional details!
