Sprint Provides Glimmer of Hope for Clearwire
Speaking to investors, Sprint CEO said that Clearwire's recent warning that it has less than 12 months of funding left doesn't preclude Sprint from kicking in some money. Hesse said, "That doesn't mean that Sprint and other partners won't continue to fund Clearwire." Hesse stopped short of actually saying that Sprint would provide Clearwire with more money, however. Clearwire recently announced lay-offs, product delays, and build-out delays in an attempt to reduce capital spending. It is seeking the funding it needs to continue operations, but has so far been unsuccessful.

Two different security flaws affecting the customers of AT&T and T-Mobile were revealed this week. The security gaps could have given hackers access to customer account PINs, which would in turn allow them to potentially hijack the customers' SIM cards.
Sprint is helping Clearwire pay the bills....
But seriously, how do they not realize that the slow adoption of WiMax is due not only to it's agonizingly slow rollout, but poor real world performance?
My internet connection is, on average, 9 mbps. That's fast enough for my needs right now. Sure, it's not 100 mbps, but it works, and quite consistently, too...
Hey Sprint, wanna keep your WiMax?
Seriously though, what the hell kind of deal does Sprint have with Clear that allows them to use their network and not help fund them?
If Clearwire goes under, does this mean that Sprint no longer has "4G"?
I think they spun off Clear as a seperate entity in case other companies wanted to launch WiMax based services...they could go through Clear as well ??
Sprint STILL hasn't learned it's lesson yet....................?
This is undoubtedly the question that is raised at corporate meetings. To spend a bunch more money and switch. It's a tough choice. Will it make any difference?

Everyone keeps whining that if sprint would "just go LTE" it would be smooth sailing. Do any of you realize that Sprint collectively owns more towers than Verizon or ATT do? The reason they don't have verizon's cover
If I understand this correctly, frequencies that travel further and penetrate buildings, don't have as much abil...
Sprint sold their entire network of towers to TowerCo. They pay TowerCo to build and maintain it now.
Fairly Good News.
As a consumer of the wireless industry for over 22 years, I think Sprint should be re-examined again by prospects looking to try another carrier. It is NOT the same carrier it was back a few years ago. They have expended a great deal of cash to improve their native coverage area while looking to expand on it. Their selection of products has increased ten fold and Customer 😉 Service has never been better.
I am not trying to shoot from the hip. If you are in Sprint/Clearwire's areas, I dare anyone to try their services again or for the first time. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

I happen to work for RadioShack and we sell At&t, T-Mo and Sprint. I've been with all 4 major carriers at one point or another. All have had their upsides and downsides.
I recently switched back to Sprint in June, after 4 years...
