Xohm's Baltimore Wimax hardware is working in Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Northern Virginia, and Baltimore.
Solrackm’s previous comments and reports of Xohm working in DC inspired me to go down and hear it from the horse’s mouth. I walked down to Xohm’s booth at the Baltimore Fells Point Festival which happens to be steps from Michael Phelp’s new house.
Here is the technical dirt from Mike who works at Xohm (not Mike Phelps). Xohm networks are active in Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Northern Virginia and of course Baltimore. Mike and his coworkers warned me that the networks will work but are “not supported” and are still being tested. They did say my Samsung expresscard wimax hardware which I bought last week will work even in Chicago which is using Motorola tower equipment. To my knowledge, no coverage area has even been posted for these regions.
For those of you broadband geeks our there, it might be time to UPS air your Baltimore wimax hardware in for your fix of wimax geekery. I am flying to Boston on Wednesday with my Baltimore hardware. When we get there I will let you know how it works at the airport and surrounding suburbs.
Talk about this in our Wimax Forums where this was first reported by one of our users.

One of our forum users, Solrackm, is reporting that Xohm is now live in DC and Northern Viriginia for Wimax users who have purchased their equipment in Baltimore. Apparently xohm is not actively being sold, but the network can be accessed while it is in "test mode" It looks like things are happening fast. Xohm had a realitively big mobile sales setup at Baltimore's Fell's Point festival. Talk about this in our wimax forums.
