Cox Communications has confirmed that it will decommission its CDMA 3G network and will instead continue to re-sell Sprint's cellular services. In a statement provided to Fierce Wireless, Cox spokesperson David Deliman said, "We believe this approach is good for our customers, allowing us to take the necessary steps to fulfill our promise to deliver a Cox experience that customers expect from us. In continuing with our successful wholesale model for 3G wireless services, we will accomplish speed to market while achieving greater operational efficiencies from a wholesale model that continues to improve." Cox didn't provide a time frame, but said it hopes to offer Sprint's services to about half its footprint by the end of the year. Cox was using its own equipment to support its wireless network, and had even purchased AWS spectrum. It hasn't spoken of firm plans for its equipment and spectrum once the network is decommissioned.
