Sprint Picks uLocate to Power Location Services on WiMax Service

Overland Park, KS-based Sprint, which is building a nationwide WiMax network called XOHM, has picked Boston’s uLocate to power the local information and mapping services for XOHM subscribers. XOHM, a so-called “4G” network, will cover entire metropolitan areas with broadband wireless data at speeds approaching those of cable Internet service. In an announcement yesterday, uLocate said developers will be able to use its Where platform to build information services that use the location information built into WiMax signals.
