When it's done and if it looks better I may jump over to that or just add it to what I have price dependant.

It should be interesting to see if they will sell access to it under the CLEAR brand to end-users.

You also have to keep in mind that this network will be very limited to dense cities.

And it will cost money they don't have.

Why not just buy a magic carpet? No one wants WiMax, they really can't afford a full LTE build out...they're pretty screwed.

I don't think so. I think Sprint cannot afford to let them fail as Sprint does not have enough spectrum in urban areas for LTE.

What I will say is that the Clearwire we know today will be very different in a few years. It'll likely impact the rural users the most. :-(
