Hesse: Sprint's Future Includes Clearwire and WiMax
As long as we keep talking LTE to Clear...then YES.
Wimax is not on vendors priority list anymroe to manufacture for, considering all the carriers in the US and most of the carriers abroad are deplying LTE.
Ergo, leave the Wimax to the laptops and stuff, get LTE up for phones.
Staying with Wimax now not only hurts us, but continues to hurt us, and when Clearwire goes under from no extra financial backing then it's bye bye Sprint 4G...period.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“every optionÃ¢â‚¬Â for SprintÃ¢â‚¬™s future involves the wholesaler and fourth-generation WiMax technology.
HA HA... does not seem like good timing! :o
Oh the humanities!!!
However for right now just because Hesse said we are moving forward with WiMax and Clear as a partner I doubt it will sky rocket.
Also, while I would rue the day that they announced...
Stringing Clearwire on...
Are they crazy!
I've never experienced any better speeds than 3G with WiMax, it can't penetrate buildings very well, it chews up your battery, and if you get a 4G phone they strap on an extra $10 charge for this crappy excuse for high speed data! 👿
This is most defiantly Mr. Hesse's fist misstep in awhile.
I'm just pissed that I'm locked into a contract for my Mi-Fi and live in a crappy WiMax coverage Area when the other carriers have better high speed coverage. ☹️
and if you get a 4G phone they strap on an extra $10 charge for this crappy excuse for high speed data!
they charge the extra $10 on all smart phones, dont they?
