Sprint operates a nationwide network with CDMA technology in the PCS (1900 MHz) and ESMR (800 MHz) bands, which includes CDMA EVDO Rev. A for 3G data. The company operates two 4G data networks: an older one using WiMAX technology in the 2500 MHz band that is slowly being phased out, and a newer, growing network using industry-standard LTE technology in the new G block of the PCS (1900 MHz) band. The company also owns an iDEN network acquired during Sprint's merger with Nextel in August 2005, operating in the ESMR (800 Mhz) band, although it is being shut down in 2013. Sprint has a close relationship with Clear, giving it access to the 2500 MHz band, which currently hosts a WiMAX 4G network. Sprint plans to replace WiMAX with LTE in that band.
