Well we all knew this day would eventually come after the FCC denied them the waiver to build a terrestrial LTE network back in February. I am glad Sprint had the cajones to pull out of that deal after the march extension.

 

What is left to be seen is what the Lightsquared wholesale customers are going to do in reaction of this news. I really hope that Clearwire can capture the majority of Lightsquared wholesale customers for LTE. The more Clearwire does not have to rely solely on Sprint the better.

LS partner list ClearWire can go by. Some should be crossed out all ready

When will ClearWire sign LTE wholesale agreement with the following carriers?

 

T-Mobile USA (34 million)

MetroPCS (9 million)

U.S. Cellular (6 million)

C-Spire (1 million)

 

I think you can cross out Tmobile. I can't see Tmobile teaming up with Clearwire for LTE. I would like to see MetroPCS and US Cellular join the Clearwire LTE bandwagon though. C-spire would be welcomed as well.

Yes some partners can be crossed off like Simplexity, Leap, Elevate and FreedomPop that joined Clearwire. However that website shows 33 potential LTE partners and Clearwire has only captured 4 out of 33. I would love to see Clearwire capture between 25-30 of those partners.

What if LightSquared partners up with Clearwire?

 

I really do not want Clearwire going anywhere near Lightsquared. Just let Lightsquared die already. Lightsquared to me is tainted by Mr. Falcone and Clearwire does not need this especially when it is trying to turn its image around. All Clearwire needs to do is focus 110% on bringing LTE to as many towers as it can to alleviate Sprint towers as well to its Wimax overlay so they can start charging its lined up wholesale customers. I think once the network is up, the former Lightsquared customers will flock over.
