Sprint said that Clearwire's 2.5GHz spectrum will play an essential role in Sprint's LTE 4G network in the coming years. Speaking to reporters this week, Sprint CEO Dan Hesse explained that both its 1900MHz and 800MHz bands will run out of capacity for LTE 4G in several years. Sprint is deploying LTE on its 1900MHz spectrum this year and next year, and will start deploying LTE on its 800MHz spectrum in 2014. Clearwire is launching TDD-LTE in its 2.5GHz spectrum band. Hesse clearly said that if Clearwire can't or doesn't get its LTE network up and running in a sufficient way, that Sprint may be forced to acquire more spectrum for its 4G network. Hesse didn't say what spectrum bands it would look to acquire, but said that Clearwire's spectrum is highly desirable.
