The rumors abound and several blogs are now confident in their prediction of an October 8, 2008 launch for XOHM. The long anticipated WiMAX service from Sprint will go live with a ceremony at Bond Street Wharf Park in Baltimore with Sprint CEO Dan Hesse, XOHM president Barry West, and Intel EVP Sean Maloney in attendance, according to Gear Log. The XOHM launch, like many high profile new technology launches, has seen its fair share of delays. The last reported delay culprit was backhaul capacity challenges.

Several markets will follow Baltimore, including Washington D.C., Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, and Dallas. Let the WiMAX competitive implications officially begin.
