Sprint and Clearwire today announced a new financial arrangement regarding Sprint's wholesale use of Clearwire's WiMax network. Sprint has agreed to pay Clearwire $1 billion in 2011 and in 2012, which includes usage fees of $300 million in 2011 and $550 million in 2012. The two companies also ironed out the wholesale pricing for Sprint devices that operate on both Sprint's 3G network and Clearwire's 4G network. This device agreement includes the parameters for usage-based pricing, volume discounts, and includes minimum payments per 4G device activated. The agreement also covers Sprint's plans to offer business- and government-focused services via Clearwire's WiMax network. The two companies believe that the new arrangement will help them move forward in the competitive landscape.
