Can Clearwire Survive Without Mobile Voice Revenue?
Well now your argument is changing. At least you seem to acknowledge that none of the existing WiMAX enabled phones are using WiMAX to deliver its voice service and that CWLR generates zero mobile voice revenue today. That's progress.
But now you say "when" CLWR does finally get a phone. Well, that's not quite enough either because CLWR could market an EVO or Epic clone which is still 3G voice but that continues to give Sprint 100% of the voice revenue.
The question is not who markets the phone (Sprint or CLWR), the question is when CLWR will deliver the fee-based mobile 4G-WiMAX voice service and capture the revenue.
This could have been done long ago, but it hasn't. And it isn't likely to happen under the current management.
