It's Softbank and Dish fight

Clear board members choose Dish yesterday.
That's why Sprint/Softbank back out WiMax due to the facts that most Clear customers are Sprint WiMax customers.

To me, 2.6GHz band Clear holds is junk, I am 0.3Mi and can see this tower by the windows, the low penetration and noise is so high till I installed a outdoor antenna to make it 4G speed. Same to 1900 band LTE sucks, Softbank need to get money for better airwave to run whatever better 4G technology.

Just drop Clear, it's big chuck of junkie airwaves who ever holds it, get more complains only. Good decision!

Get some good airwaves instead wasting money with old WiMax infrastructures. Sprint will need to buy new LTE stuff anyway, with or without Clear.
