Leap Wireless CEO Doug Hutcheson said that the company is interesting in extending its existing 3G wholesale agreement with Sprint to include Long Term Evolution 4G. "We're very willing to look at that - we don't see a single strategy of only doing it ourselves," said Hutcheson. Leap currently resells Sprint's 3G services under the Cricket brand in markets where it doesn't provide its own coverage. Including LTE in their wholesale deal could save Leap Wireless a considerable amount of money, as it would otherwise have to acquire more spectrum to expand its own LTE footprint. Leap Wireless launched its first LTE market in Tucson, Ariz., last month.
