9 thoughts on “Clearwire, Sprint Call Their Deal Off”

  1. No way Sprint and Clearwire are going to build rival networks. They’re just going back to the old plan of “let’s call it a coincidence that we never seem to buildout the same markets.” Then, when the numbers look more attractive/mood changes on Wall Street, the hookup will be back on. We’ve seen this plenty of times before in telecom. No doubt that WiMAX should be a separate company though, as legacy Sprint networks will just drag the whole thing down. Can McCaw raise the money for Clearwire to buy out Sprint? The end game being, of course, that Sprint eventually buys back the whole enchilada at a nice profit to McCaw and friends.
