Much, much better than Spint

I've always said that Sprint hasn't been ambitous with WiMax. And now Clear is taking things into the own hands and actually delivering WiMax to more cities than the one measly city that Sprint brought WiMax to, Baltimore.

isn't clear own by sprint?

Just to clear it up..clearwire is sprints wimax network.

sprint owns majority stock of clearwire.

So what does this mean for sprint exactly

Clearwire will be opening its own stores?

How is that going to work out?
go to clearwire.com it pretty much explains it. clearwire has its own lists of services, sprint is the cell phone side.sprint ownes 51 percent of clearwire. wimax wont just be for cell phones. its more like an upgraded wifi.
