    FCC/Lightsquared Stonewall's Senator Grassley

    ... what he is doing.

    He is very much aware that his handling of Clearwire represents a huge risk to Sprint.

    Yes, there is a chance that such risk taking could pay off but for Sprint to pay $2 to $3 billion extra on Network Vision just to REPLICATE what Clearwire already has in place rather than contribute to the mere $600 million Clearwire needs to do the job would be PURE LUNACY...

    ... especially since that $600 million at Clearwire would buy 100 megabit LTE-Advanced speeds and the $2 to $3 billion spent replicating that infrastructure would run at 1/10 that speed.

    If Dan Hesse ever thought forcing a Clearwire bankruptcy was an option, sure... it could work... but not without huge risk and potential disruption. For Dangerous Dan to take a fragile company like sprint and take such risks when the opportunity is there for Dan or a replacement for Dan to work with Clearwire for common benefit can only be described one way...

    ... pure LUNACY.
