Sprint, Clearwire Mulling Their LTE 4G Future
Sprint and Clearwire have signed a non-binding agreement whereby they'll work together to develop the technical specifications necessary for Clearwire to launch Long Term Evolution and for the two networks to be interoperable. The agreement will cover items such as cell site selection, site builds, and chipsets for devices. The companies want to ensure that customers using Sprint's service will enjoy seamless handoffs between Sprint and Clearwire's networks. Both Sprint and Clearwire have announced plans to shift away from WiMax and deploy LTE 4G networks in their place.
Honestly I believe that this is the way to go, Lightsquare may never be up and running + there frequensy is suspect and Clearwire has so much spectrum that Sprint should be ok from this deal. The only question mark is th
supplemental downlink: the Sprint-Clearwire spectrum solution
