First, the reason for sprints investment in WiMAX is well documented. They would forfeit the spectrum gained from the Nextel acquisition if they did not deploy a next gen network in a certain time period. Wimax was ready, lte was not, pure and simple.

Also to the best of my knowledge sprint does not actually have wimax on,any of its own towers. That network is owned and operated entirely by clear.

Be that is it may, the rest of the industry was going with LTE. They should have made other plans. I do understand the tough spot they were in however if what your saying is true.

Regarding the towers, Yeah I knew it's entirely operated by Clear but I hear conflicting information reading the towers. Doesn't matter anyway because service sucks regardless and that's the bottom line. I think LTE will work better for them.
