Sprint Completes Their Acquisition of Clearwire

https://secure.dslreports.com/shownews/Sprint-Completes-Their-Acquisition-of-Clearwire-124916

I will post anything I find.
I hope Sprint will keep the old Clear network going and upgrade to LTE.
Not looking good at this time for my location in the KC area. My speeds as well as other users around me are seeing the lowest down speeds we have ever seen.
Makes me wonder if they are going to let the system die a slow death.

Well, sprint is announcing new Tri-Band devices(usb dongles, Mifi devices etc.) which include the Clearwire 2.5Ghz band for LTE.
Unfortunately there are no Unlimited Plans equivalent to what Clearwire currently offers.
I also found this:

From the Fierce article: "A Sprint spokeswoman could not immediately comment on the status of Sprint's 2.5 GHz LTE network buildout, and also could not immediately discuss what kinds of download speeds Sprint expects to provide in its 2.5 GHz spectrum."

I am sure we will be getting more details after Sprint/SoftBank decide how much to spend and how fast.
