According to sources cited by GigaOm, Sprint has been evaluating Long Term Evolution networking technology. Spokesman John Polivka said in an email to GigaOm, "You know of our commitment to WiMAX as our 4G play, the only next gen technology commercially offered. … As a prudent Technology Development organization we are always collecting competitive information about various technologies/equipment to monitor and assess the competitive landscape and any potential impacts to Sprint’s plans." Sprint and partner Clearwire are currently building out WiMax as their next-generation network. This statement does not mean that Sprint is going to dump WiMax in favor of LTE, but it leaves open the possibility that Sprint may consider it more seriously in the future.
