    • ... once they spend time and money to upgrade their towers to "clearwire-grade" infrastructure, then they're going to launch TD-LTE (aka, "vanilla" LTE)...

      ... which will probably run even slower than Verizon's LTE since, apart from Clearwire, Sprint has insufficient spectrum to run it on.

      I estimate that sprint's TD-LTE will run at about 1/12 the speed that Clearwire's LTE-Advanced will run at... if Clearwire can get the $600 million they need for the radio heads....

      ... sprint will spend almost 3 times that $600 million to replicate clearwire's efforts... yes, Virginia, Dan Hesse can't add and subtract very well either.

      • Spok,
        You know not how Sprint will pay or deliver their services,only what you read which is worthless. I am sorry to see you have morphed into a board basher. What happened to that contrarian spirit you so boldly expound? You know the risks and yet you seem to be unerved by the fact that your investment is now almost worthless. That's the way it is and nobody is to blame other than you. As far as CLWR goes nobody and I mean nobody clearly knows the end game, but if LS2 starts forking over 9 billion to Sprint, I would say that Hesse's gamble certainly paid off. In the meantime S and ClWR will be surrounded in controversy until some of these moving parts are decided.Best of luck and quit trying to pass the buck!!!

    • Yes, and I will guess this is going to be announced in CC on Wed.
