Re: Republic does not use Clearwire
said by watmore:
The article states Republic Wireless uses the Clearwire Network. Republic Wireless strongly encourages its subscribers to make calls using the Wi-Fi capability of the Republic handsets. When Wi-Fi is unavailable, the handset switches to the Sprint Network, not Clearwire.
Freedom Pop, a data only wireless service uses Clearwire.
Didnt you hear: clearwire was bought out by sprint, and before the total buyout, Sprint held a controlling stake in clearwire anyways.

I did hear that, thanks. However, as of today Clearwire and Sprint operate entirely different networks using different wireless technologies, Sprint 4g using LTE, Sprint 3g using EVDO, and Clearwire using WIMAX.
