Small Businesses Face "Internet Dead Zone" in Sodo After Sprint Shutters Wireless Network

From the Stranger's Ansel Herz:

"At midnight on November 6, Sprint began disconnecting thousands of customers across from the country from its WiMax Internet network, which it's shutting down. That's left at least two Seattle small businesses in a virtual "Internet dead zone," because their area of Sodo isn't serviced by CenturyLink or Comcast, the city's two major Internet providers, or Wave Broadband.

"It sucks not having options," Mary Milliron, the owner of Pork Shop Screen Printing, said. "They're just like, 'Nope, we don't service your area.'"
