If you've got a Clearwire or Sprint 4G data plan, it just got a little more valuable. The Street.com reports that the provider has just rolled out 4G in seven new cities. Denizens of Eugene, Oregon, Merced and Visalia California, Yakima and Tri-Cities, Washington, and Rochester and Syracuse, New York.

This brings Sprint/Clearwire's 4G network to a total of 44 cities, some 51 million people. I recently road-tripped across the western United States. My Sprint 4G connection only worked in Dallas, Denver and Portland-but I had a 3G signal the vast majority of the journey.

We aren't far off from the day when 4G signal will be as everpresent as 3G has become. Can you imagine driving through rural Wyoming with a 3-6 Mbps connection? Soon every mountain man in Appalachia will have a blog and an active Flickr feed.
