Clearwire CEO: No LTE Until 2012
Clearwire's CEO Bill Morrow recently explained in more detail the company's network plans for the future. Despite the recent change in its agreement with Intel that would let it switch to Long Term Evolution from WiMax as soon as this year, the company has no immediate plans to change networking technologies. About the agreement change with Intel, Morrow said, "We won't be deploying LTE anytime soon and definitely not before 2012. But it does give us greater flexibility." Morrow also indicated that he'd like to make T-Mobile USA a wholesale customer of its network, but downplayed T-Mobile's HSPA+ network. "As a competitor, we know that the HSPA+ cost structure is not sustainable for scalable mobile broadband services. So HSPA is a Band-Aid for carriers who are using it until they get to a full IP network, which will change the cost structure." T-Mobile USA has recently indicated that it is exploring partnerships to help with its 4G network roll out.

Every corporation will use it to replace wifi and a wimax phone will be able to use all those towers for free.
Since you're claiming WiMax is going to be totally free, do you have a date that Clear...
HSPA is consider a 4g technology????
I think it would be the perfect move for T-mobile. Which then can spew a merger with Sprint and T-mobile if DT is still looking to spin off T-mobile from DT. Hence T-mobile and Sprint would be on the same technology allowing a possible merger to strengthen competition in tough markets against the current duopoly AT&T and Verizon.
