Nextel coverage and tower placement covered more area than WiMAX did yes, but the Clearwire spectrum licences are nationwide, every single state, every single market, it was a blanket block that was for the whole nation. If Sprint wanted to, they could deploy in Wyoming, North Dakota and South Dakota, even Montana on that new Clearwire spectrum, but it is not cost efficient, so Nextel's old lower frequency will have to do.

But technically, Sprint, like Verizon, has a spectrum block that is nationwide every corner, they wont use it like that though.
