Las Vegas (NV) - Motorola said that it has been chosen by Sprint-Nextel to build a Wimax infrastructure for Chicago, IL. Motorola said that it will deploy at least 1000 sites in the Chicagoland area, providing a broadband coverage that is planned to complement Sprint's existing EV-DO network.

The initial service is expected to be available late in 2007, with the commercial launch set for the first half of 2008.
