WalMart to open 280 supercenters next year

Why is this mobile tech related?  Earlier this year I mentioned on a techADDICTION Show that I think the easiest way to roll out WiMax in the US is to put the transmitters in every WalMart store.   I have seen it published somewhere (I can’t remember where) that over 90% of the population of the US lives within 20 miles of a WalMart store.  Add these nearly 300 new stores and that number can only go up so think about it.  No matter where you move in the US you’d know you had broadband available and you wouldn’t even have to switch carriers.  Sign me up.
