An anonymous source cited by AndroidGuys claims they have been asked to determine how many stores overlap each other in a 30 to 50 mile radius. It was concluded that the plan would provide sufficient coverage for a large portion of the US, and it would cost less than erecting towers and dealing with hassles and zoning permissions.
Despite its colossal count of retail locations, I imagine affixing WiMax towers on every Walmart store would still leave plenty of gaps in coverage.
