    Wimax network hardware to be recycled into LTE

    Sprint added a total of 1.3 million net, new subscribers in the 3rd quarter.

    Clearwire, which provides all of sprint's WiMax service, added 1.9 million net new and 80 to 90% of Clearwire's business is through sprint.

    Do the math.

    By the way, Verizon added 1.3 million net, new subs in Q3. They didn't break out LTE... too embarassing on the heel's of Clearwire's pre-announcement.

    Surprised by all this?... move over, I'm surprised too. The only significant advantage I can see for WiMax over Verizons's LTE is it's "unlimited"...

    ... so, true to form, Dangerous Dan Hesse proceeded to shoot himself in the foot, yet again, by cancelling "unlimited" WiMax for all devices except smart phones.
