Seems Sprint was Forced to make Play on Clear Wire from all the chat that has came out about Clear and talks with others about a deal. even with sprints 50.4% control of clear it seems others may not be so demanding on majority ownership and willing to take a lower % after all it will be Sprints problem if Softies deal don't get app then when sprint is forced into lowering their stock interest in Clear Wire again like a few yrs. back it will be much harder to keep control and they know it.
One high roller that can offer the other investors more money and future deals for their products such as Sprint has dealings with then can walk with all. Plus there would be no 25% cap on a American company.
