Sprint to make Xohm SDK available

While we have noted that Sprint plans to run its Xohm WiMAX network as an open access network, Sprint's SVP of Xohm, Atish Gude, told TechRepublic that the carrier plans to release the SDK and open APIs for Xohm by year end.

"We're going to be open on devices and open on applications," said Gude. "We're here to serve the Internet. Our foremost priority is providing really good access ... This is the open Internet. We're not going to block anybody." Gude also addressed the subsequent privacy concerns that an open access network conjures for some: "We will absolutely have the highest level of privacy, and we will let customers control when to expose [their data]."
