"NEW YORK (Reuters) - The Federal Communications Commission voted on Tuesday to approve Sprint Nextel Corp's proposed joint venture with Clearwire Corp. Sprint and Clearwire plan to combine their resources to build a high-speed wireless network with investments from companies such as Comcast Corp, Intel Corp and Google Inc. Sprint said it received DoJ approval for the venture in August, but Clearwire shareholders needed to vote on the deal on November 20 before it could be finalized. The companies announced their $14.5 billion venture in May and their plan to build a network based on WiMax, which promises to blanket entire cities with high-speed wireless access for everything from cameras to computers."

Hmmmm...says here it was a joint venture. So you think it is fair for Sprint to donate resources to Clearwire, have a stake in that entity and then have that entity compete against iPCS? Good luck with the lawsuit, Sprint. I think they need to settle this by buying out this last affiliate and making this go away.
