So long, Sprint Broadband Direct

sprint_broadband_direct I can’t imagine there are too many users are still on Sprint’s Broadband Direct line-of-sight wireless broadband service, but if you or someone you know is using it it’s time to start shopping around for an alternative.

Sprint has announced that it will be shutting down the service on June 30th or July 31st (depending which market you’re in) “as the result of a recent FCC action.”

I’ve only personally know of one person that had used the service and they moved to DSL pretty quickly, saying that the service was too slow.
