Sprint MMDS Broadband Direct

I happen to go to a WiMAX presentation tonight, and was sitting there wondering about the Sprint MMDS effort called Broadband Direct that was offered in 14 markets - including Chicago (home) -

I seem to recall that it was phased out... but could be wrong -

I used to have that, I live in suburbs of Chicago. I thought thay stopped taking new customers, they still support existing customers, one of my friends still have it. You need a clear line of sight to Sears towers, they have the transmitter on it. I believe it uses microwave to communicate.

I naver had problem with it, it got little bit expensive onve I got cable modem available in my area. Cable modem was lot cheaper.

Looks like they are accepting new customers again.
