Clearwire signs up LEAP


Recommended Posts

Great find!!!! Its nice to hear another major wholesale customer in Cricket to sign up for LTE service. If MetroPCS can just sign up for a wholesale LTE deal, that would be great as well as the former Lightsquared customers.

 

I just hope that Clearwire is making good progress with China Mobile to develop the TD-LTE standard.

I hope we see some momentum from this for the ex-LS2 customers. I am still very afraid of how Clearwire will fare starting June 2012 to June 2013. That is going to be a huge loss of revenue for Clearwire. I know a lot of EVO customers will jump ship to LTE service and any 3G customer will jump to 4G LTE phones. I know that if I were a EVO customer from 2010, I would jump ship to the LTE phones come June.

Some more news on Clearwires deal with LEAP. Also, Clearwire is in negotiations with Metro PCS and has a deal with C-Spire.

I don't think C-spire has signed up with Clearwire yet. If you read the article again in the section quoted below, only 2 ex-LS2 customers in MVNE Simplexity and FreedomPop have signed wholesale deals with Clearwire. The article was just mentioning other LS2 customers, C-Spire and SI Wireless, could be of interest to Clearwire.

 

"Still, Clearwire has already announced two agreements with companies that had signed deals with LightSquared: MVNE Simplexity and FreedomPop, which aims to provide mobile broadband on a freemium model. Other companies that signed deals with LightSquared include C Spire Wireless and rural carrier SI Wireless."

What's sad is their stock can't catch a break...even with news of lightsquared customers defecting to them and lightsquared being about done itself you would think the stock would see a lil life.

It was up on the new customer deal but then the next day retraced about all of the move...someone is evidently sitting heavy on this thing...

    • I'm still getting Band 26 and Band 41 from keep sites in Crown Heights and Bay Ridge. I haven't seen any Band 25 though. I'm starting to think T-Mobile shut down Sprint's PCS spectrum here. I wonder if we'll get 5MHz Band 25 + 5MHz n25 carrier or if we'll just get 2 5MHz n25 carriers.
    • Still seeing strong T-Mobile HSPA+ and some weak Sprint B26 (311-490) in the north Bedstuy area Sprint eNB 6705 (40.70091884265787,-73.94344902067445) is broadcasting the keep PLMN Sprint eNB 899078/899079 (40.83022854043739,-73.94830306659236) has been converted, though the site has not yet been lit up. The density up there is pretty insane - 400ft from the site just North, 600ft from the site just South. Spotted another Dish site near City College (1606 Amsterdam Ave). This is not a former Sprint site, and the neighboring Sprint site (across the street) has not been decommissioned. Still not seeing the Dish PLMN in this area.
    • Just cycled through where I'm sitting...not near any keep sites...and 25/26 don't exist...locking to them but.ps me over to AT&T MFBI (why TMo isn't doing 2/25 MFBI here I don't know...maybe Nokia equipment can't do it?). TMo B41 is visible, but Sprint isn't. Two nights ago I saw 10 MHz Sprint B41 at the top of the band. Not sure whether that's live today.
    • Dish has base stations and antennas already set up for n26, and phones are starting to come out supporting that. Yes, it's a 5x5 patchwork, but it can basically provide an anchor for higher-frequency NR that augments n71, which in many places is only 5x5 on Dish.
    • Sprint still alive on all 3 bands here in the South Puget Sound area this morning. Robert
