Sprint Signs LTE Wholesalers
Sprint has signed wholesale LTE capacity agreements with at least 10 companies, said Matt Carter, president of Sprint Wholesale Solutions and New Ventures in an interview. Carter said that its wholesale customers will provide Sprint LTE services under their own brand, but declined to name any of the companies. Sprint last year said it wanted to increase the number of its wholesale customers, which now number more than 100. The new wholesale customers may be seeking alternative service providers now that LightSquared's planned LTE 4G network has been blocked by the FCC. LightSquared had signed up dozens of wholesalers before its plans collapsed.
