  1. Sprint Nextel and Clearwire today announced an amendment to their long-term agreement that establishes new wholesale pricing terms and provides Clearwire a minimum of $1.025 billion from Sprint to be paid during 2011 and 2012 for 4G wholesale services. The minimum usage commitments are as follows: $300 million in 2011, $550 million in 2012, and $175 million in pre-payments for 4G wholesale services to be used this year, next year, and beyond.

    I wonder if anyone from Sprint ever checks up on Clearwire and how that network is going. Here in downtown Milwaukee they're delivering a blazing 70kbps 3G download on a speed test a min ago. Can't offer the 4G numbers cause that network doesn't exist yet.

    Sprint needs to worry about providing their current customers with a decent network and not braggin in their commercials about how they're still truly 'unlimited' with their data plans.
