At long last, it seems that this particular saga is drawing to an end. Clearwire, once a hot company in the age of WiMAX, fell off of the map fairly quickly after it became crystal clear that LTE was the future of 4G. But recently, it has become a hot commodity. Both Sprint and Dish have been flinging dirt over who was going to take it over,... Read more...
Just what Sprint needs: another lawsuit to spend gobs of money on as it bleeds customers. But sure enough, the carrier -- which is struggling mightily on the coverage aspect as well as the LTE rollout front -- has just filed suit against DISH Network and Clearwire, citing the illegality of the DISH offer to buy up Clearwire. It has become... Read more...
Sprint and Clearwire have reached an agreement whereby Sprint will purchase roughly half of Clearwire for $2.2 billion (approximately $2.97 per share).

If you’re surprised that EarthLink is still a thing, you’re not alone, but the ISP is apparently very much alive and kicking. Today, the company announced that it will offer its customers fixed and mobile broadband service via Clearwire’s 4G WiMAX network. The new capabilities will be available starting in early 2013, and... Read more...
Cricket may not strike you as being a major wireless player, but they're actually bringing on their fair share of customers; mostly folks who are tired of playing the contract game. And with that, comes expectations. With the major carriers jumping hastily to LTE, Cricket has announced a new deal with Clearwire (a five-year agreement) that... Read more...
Well that didn’t take long. Verizon Wireless’ acquisition of SpectrumCo’s 122 Advanced Wireless Services spectrum licenses is already making waves in the wireless industry. As we reported earlier, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and Bright House Networks were the trio that formed SpectrumCo, and the sale... Read more...
For a company that doesn't sell any phones, Clearwire sure has been in the carrier news a lot lately. The company best known for helping Sprint out on the delivery of that WiMAX network is now in the news for something outside of The Now Network. Clearwire is reportedly in talks with various U.S. wireless operators... Read more...
While Sprint has a major stake in the company that provides WiMAX services to all of its 4G devices, Clearwire is still its own beast. It may not remain that way for long, however: a new Bloomberg report suggests that Sprint is currently "talking with cable companies about a possible investment that may lead to an... Read more...
With Verizon Wireless and AT&T committed to rolling out 4G LTE networks, some have wondered what Sprint and Clearwire will do with their WiMAX technology. It's no secret that Clearwire has been testing LTE technology for a year. Sprint, which is Clearwire's partner and biggest customer, has also stated that it was not committed solely... Read more...
Well, isn't this crazy. Sprint and Clearwire struck first (at least, in the U.S. commercial market) with WiMAX, but Verizon Wireless has managed to make their rollout look dated with LTE. The Big Red Network has been pushing out their own 4G services at an alarming rate, and this week they're turning the "on" switch for 19 additional markets.... Read more...
Clearwire and Ericsson, sitting in a tree? They probably aren't kissing, but they are in cahoots now. Clearwire just announced plans to leverage Ericsson's global best practices, tools, and processors in order to "maximize effeicients, provide continued network quality and reduce operating costs." That's a mouthful, but it boils down to something... Read more...
Did you know that Clearwire was considering making a smartphone, or cellphone? The same Clearwire that provides 4G (WiMAX) services to consumers and carriers like Sprint. Yeah, probably not. You know why? Among other things, Sony Ericsson was picking a bone with the company, suggesting that their logo was too similar... Read more...
Well, guess what? Clearwire has some positive news to share. The company has taken somewhat of a beating in recent quarters, which is expected for a startup trying to build out a national network of WiMAX with hardly any carrier support outside of Sprint. But now, the company's Q1 2011 earnings report shows that they... Read more...
Is something afoot at Clearwire? To many, WiMAX has been a dying technology. LTE clearly has the Lion's share of the support globally, and many carriers (like Yota in Russia) have already switched their 4G service loyalty from WiMAX to LTE. But Clearwire is still a big deal, and Sprint's growing 4G consumer base relies on those airwaves. But... Read more...
