Re: Major news

In order to fix the indoor coverage problem, you need more towers. In order get more towers, you need more money which they don't have. Clear's been bitching about Sprint's lack of funding.

2.5GHz is just a $hitty band. Face it.

I just think Sprint is better off converting Nextels 800MHz into LTE and forgetting about stupid WiMAX. If Clear wants to still offer it, so be it. Clear should target rural users using Satellite for internet.

You have a point. 150MHz of 2.5GHz spectrum is AWESOME for fixed wireless service with an external antenna, not so hot for mobile use...

I don't mind cell sites perched atop buildings, or on existing towers. Between the two coverage should be just fine. Sprint has a cell site atop a building a few hundred yards away from me and as a result my phone works where other people's phones don't...and it's a Sprint phone.

Which is why I don't get how changing 2 point anything to LTE is better. Sprint doesn't have any 700Mhz spectrum, and they don't have the major ground network to provide high speeds in much of the country.
