Sprint has confirmed pricing for its XOHM WiMAX service, officially launched today in Baltimore. Offering average download speeds of 2-4 Mbps and uplink speeds of 1-2 Mbps, XOHM will be initially offered in two versions: Home, for replacing an ADSL or cable broadband service, and On-the-Go, for use with a mobile device. Initial discounting means service starts from $25 per month.
Full XOHM pricing details after the cut
The Home service will be priced at $25 per month for the first six months, after which it rises to $35/mo. The On-the-Go plan is initially priced at $30 per month, again for the first six months, then rises to $45/mo. XOHM subscribers will also be offered a combination package, called Pick 2, which gives both Home and On-the-Go access for $50 per month for the first six months, then $65/mo afterwards.
Finally, a pay-per-day option - called Daily On-the-Go - is available, priced at $10 each day. The benefit is that there's no contract, and it's suitable for anybody moving in and out of WiMAX coverage; the downside is the price, which works out significantly higher than any of the other options.
