Nextel today announced plans to construct a trial high-speed wireless broadband data network in the Washington, D.C. area using UMTS TD-CDMA technology from IPWireless. The network will utilize Nextel's 2.5 GHz licensed spectrum band. The network will launch in the third quarter, with the trial lasting for a minimum for six months. Nextel plans to test a range of services over the network, including broadband data for laptops, desktops or PDAs, video streaming, online gaming, and video conferencing. The network is not yet expected to be offered commercially to the general public. IPwireless' technology has already been adopted by T-Mobile in the Czech Republic. Nextel recently conducted a successful trial of competing Flash-OFDM technology from Flarion in North Carolina.

This is great, but...

This is great, but I don't see how and when they are going to be able to adopt any of these technologies if Sprint has already made the decision on EV-DO, and I'm sure future CDMA tech.
im not sure if you remember but sprint will be testing wimax over their DO system.

after DO REV O and REV A there is basically nothing else with cdma. they have to move to ipwireless or wimax, and thats what they are going to do.

how? easily.....
