Clearwire CEO Erick Prusch today confirmed that the company is in talks to sell 4G network capacity to AT&T, MetroPCS, and Verizon Wireless. The negotiations are "continuing and getting better," said Mr. Prusch to the Wall Street Journal. "I'm very optimistic. I wouldn't be building the network or trying to raise money if I didn't think customers would be there in the end." Clearwire has been seeking funding in order to stabilize its business. It is currently building out a nationwide WiMax 4G network with Sprint, and now plans to add a TDD-LTE 4G network if it can raise the money to build it. Selling capacity to companies such as AT&T, MetroPCS, and Verizon Wireless would help, though Prusch did not account for the differences in networking technology. Its planned TDD-LTE network would be incompatible with both AT&T and Verizon's own Long Term Evolution networks.
