Celebrate good times, come on!

Sprint has just expanded the coverage of their already-awesome 4G network. This press release announces that Boston, MA, Daytona Beach, Fla., and Providence, RI now benefit from zippy WiMAX.

I've been using an HTC Evo since launch day, and I can personally vouch that Sprint's network is fantastic. To be fair; the speeds are not near the theoretical maximum. As a general rule, I see 2-4 Mbps in Dallas. I've spent a lot of time traveling cross-country in the last few months, and noticed similar speeds in other 4G areas. My highest was almost 5 Mbps in Portland, Oregon.

So yeah, while 4G isn't as fast as it could be it IS the first time I've been able to work comfortably from a wireless internet connection. I don't have to worry about whether the coffee shop has WiFi and if it will be fast enough to keep me from being miserable. Odds are, my Evo's hotspot feature will serve me well.
