Speaking to investors, Sprint's president of network operations, Steve Elfman, said that if the company decides to switch from WiMax to LTE, it could light up the network and have devices as soon as 2012 and have nationwide coverage by 2013. Elfman repeated that Sprint is still evaluating its 4G network position and it will make a decision by the middle of the year about a potential network technology switch. Elfman said that Sprint is still in negotiations with Clearwire about the future of their joint WiMax network. Sprint is still planning its Network Vision project, which aims to make massive improvements to its 3G network over the next few years. Sprint uses 1900MHz for its CDMA network, 800MHz for its iDEN network, and 2.5GHz for WiMax. The 800MHz spectrum has been earmarked for a switch to CDMA once Sprint begins to phase out iDEN in 2013.
