While it may not be choice spectrum bands, Clearwire owns an abundance of 2600Mhz frequency that would be quite useful in supplementing Sprint's own holdings. One of the key reasons Sprint has been holding onto Clearwire as a partner. There is advantages that the spectrum can help in elevating the 4G experience. Offloading to this frequency while the base frequencies are being excessively used would greatly benefit the network.

I'm not a proponent of an overseas purchaser of an American company. Sprint is on the road to recovery and I would hate to see a sellout so soon into this turnaround. However, I would be happy to see the collective kept in tact by said purchaser.
