Sprint and Clearwire Revival?

Tom Nolle Tom Nolle Profile: Tom Nolle

There is speculation that a Clearwire/Sprint relationship may still be in the cards. The two companies had forged a WiMAX alliance but it came apart in the fall due, we have heard, to a strategy difference between the two. Sprint and Clearwire are now reportedly more in sync with regards to the goals of WiMAX, which we believe means a more premium offering targeted at portable devices and not (as Sprint reportedly wanted) an alternative to fixed wireless at a price sure to be under pressure. It’s too early to say for sure whether the deal will rekindle, but there is a lot of WiMAX buzz at both Sprint and Clearwire that’s starting to sound more like harmony than competition.
