Eager to see official announcement in Barcelona.” By official announcement in Barcelona, he means it will be announced at the MWC in B

Clearwire turned the corner? Or just holding its hand out?

by Robert Herron Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Tuesday, January 24, 2012 - 10:01 AM MST   Clearwire let loose today with a select reporting of Q4-2011 financial results. Of course, these are cherry picked to get the mood about Clearwire's financials prospects reversed into positive light. However, I must admit they look a little better than I was expecting. Clearwire managed to double revenues from the previous quarter reported in 2010. This is attributable to sizable growth in its wh

We don't want to get stale and boring here at Sprint 4G Rollout Updates. Even if it means delving into the hysterical world of fantastical rumors.

Carl Icahn buying out bonholders at LightSquared...cashing in or bailing out?

by Robert Herron Sprint 4G Rollout Updates Thursday, January 19, 2012 - 3:29 PM MST   Bloomberg is reporting that billionaire Carl Icahn (with two other investors) has bought out $300 Million worth of bonds from LightSquared bondholders. This begs the question? Icahn coming in as Savior or as a cold hearted liquidator? It seems like an odd time to all of a sudden get faith in the fledging start up that is LightSquared. So motives have to be in question, here. Icahn is reporte

I'm gonna stick my neck out there, and I know there are going to be a lot of naysayers that say it can't be done. But I think I may have a solution for LightSquared that could solve their terrestrial LTE network problem. Currently, LightSquared is trying to gain approval to deploy and operate a FD-LTE network on its L-Band spectrum. This L-Band is paired spectrum that has downlink allocated

They will more likely be $199 and $99 respectively. It looks like Sprint is trying to undercut Verizon's pricing. However, I would fully expect that Verizon will more than likely have lowered it's price to match Sprint's by the time they get their LTE devic

Sprint is getting a LTE Galaxy Nexus??? WTH???

Engadget reveals that a Sprint ad has shown up on the CNET website pushing a LTE Galaxy Nexus. Wow. Now I'm excited. That was not expected. And also, it says it has a 1.5GHz dual core processor, beefier than the GSM and Verizon model with 1.2GHz dual core. This seems too good to be true.   Of course, we want some details! When is it going on sale? What frequencies of LTE will it support? Is it not coming out until summer, like previously announced? Is the LTE part a typo? Details, Dan!

SprintFeed leaks rumor that the new Samsung Galaxy Note not-quite-tablet/not-quite-smartphone is coming to Sprint

SprintFeed.com is reporting a rumor from an internal source that Sprint is getting the massive Samsung Galaxy Note. The slightly awkward and obese brother to the Samsung Galaxy SII series is larger than any smartphone, but smaller than 7" tablets.   What is not known at this time is what kind of network Sprint's model of the Note would support. Would it be 3G only? Would it run on the nearly obsolete 4G WiMax? Perhaps LTE? Yeah, I know that the LTE idea is far fetched, but I had to thr

2011 Year in Review...Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

A letter to all our fans and supporters:   As we get to the final business day of 2011, I can't help to think back on the past year. Some of you know my background, and others of you just joined along for the ride at some point in the past few months, or weeks. At the beginning of 2011, there was no S4GRU. I was just another Sprint customer with his Evo 4G, waiting for 4G service to come to his tertiary market. I bought the Evo on opening day, June 4, 2010. I had been an AT&T
