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.

The XOHM ExpressCard modem is priced at $59.99 while the XOHM USB modem is yet to be priced.  Alternatively the XOHM Modem/Gateway is priced at $79.99.
