  1. Dave YeagerSprint 4G Rollout UpdatesFriday, February 8, 2019 - 8:00 AM PST Sprint’s tribanding project has reached a new phase -- former Clear LTE 2500 only sites are getting new equipment as reported by nowerlater in Cincinnati, Joski1624 in Cleveland, and here in Columbus. Converting sites from LTE 2500 only to triband LTE 800 MHz, LTE 1900 MHz, and LTE 2500 will significantly improve network performance in the traditional metropolitan areas of markets where Clear sites reside. Adding LTE 1900, LTE 800, CDMA 1x1900, and 1x800 will mean stronger signal with improved buildi
  2. Huawei DBS 3900 TD-LTE / Wimax eRAN Equipment The following photographs are pictures of Huawei dual mode capable Wimax / TD-LTE RRU (remote radio units) as part of a DBS 3900 series setup. These equipment were originally made for the Clearwire Wimax deployment and are now being re-purposed via software upgrades to enable TD-LTE capabilities. The Huawei equipment currently used by Clearwire are temporary and will be replaced by one of the TD-LTE vendors (Samsung / Alcatel-lucent / Nokia Solutions & Networks ) in the near future. As of 2017, all Huawei equipment has been decommi
  3. I am presently customer of the old Clearwire for home internet service. By twist of fate, there are no other high-speed internet providers in my area - NOTHING! - unless you consider satellite services. Clearwire was reluctant to give me a CLEAR EXPRESS HUB and sign me up originally because my home is literally shown to be in a marginal area of service. My lot was shown to be covered but not the adjacent lots (not sure how that happens?). Anyway, they gave me the modem and I experience around 6 Mbps downloads and 1 Mbps uploads (with an outside antenna). For someone coming off dial-up and
  4. I found this while looking at FreedomPop's site and followed some of the links. It seems like that FP is part of connect2compete.org and they offer services for schools and other non-profits via mobilecitizen.org. Now I found this on their website: Mobile Citizen's wireless broadband is powered by WiMAX, a 4G technology from CLEAR. In 2006, CLEAR entered into a 30-year excess capacity agreement with the five EBS licensees which established Mobile Citizen. This agreement allows Mobile Citizen to offer advanced mobile broadband service exclusively to schools and nonprofits, helping to fu
  5. I received an email from Clearwire today that my old $37.50 rate per device (I have two) will increase by $5 on my next billing cycle. Okay, I have been (Ab)using Clear for many years and the $10 or $120 a year a still better compared to other wireless providers.
  6. On my Netgear Zing when I scan for available netwotks manually "CLEAR 4G" comes up as an optipn to select. Is Clear going to offer it's customers the option of seitching to LTE?
  7. So now that Sprint purchased all remaining shares of Clearwire what is going to happen? Will they re-purpose the towers into its own LTE network? Or are they going to keep it a separate network and just leave it as is/add more towers? Now that WiMax will be a type of LTE i hope they just use all these towers on Sprints network and start filling out the roll out!
  8. Yesterday I noticed workers up on a tower out in the south part of the KC area. I took some photos that show what must be an upgrade to TD-LTE at the Clear site. Bill
  9. I was searching around today looking for a LTE tower and found this clearwire tower. It is across the street from 11110 W 144th Terrace, Overland Park, KS 66221. Sorry, this is as close as I could get with my cell phone. What signals would it have?

Update: Full Article as referenced from Globe Newswire @ Seeking Alpha http://seekingalpha....nsaction-update BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Clearwire (CLWR) (Nasdaq:CLWR) today announced that it has received an unsolicited, non-binding proposal (the "DISH Proposal") from DISH Network Corporation ("DISH"). The DISH Proposal, as further summarized below, provides for DISH to purchase certain spectrum assets from Clearwire, enter into a commercial agreement with Clearwire, acquire up to all of Clearwire's common stock for $3.30 per share (subject to minimum ownershi

  12. So as most of you know, the FCC recently approved the deal to allow Clearwire, and sprint merge together to enhance sprint`s wireless experience. The merger between these two companies means that sprint will be able to take advantage of clearwire`s large swath of 2.5 Ghz spectrum, and eventually use it to enhance their LTE network. Also with this deal, sprint will become more competitive with bigger wireless companies such as Verizon wireless, or AT&T. Verizon is one of the carriers that has 10 x 10 Ghz blocks of spectrum deployed on most sites, meaning more spectrum available on these tow

More than any other carrier in the country. Before 2007, 2.5GHz-2.65GHz was allocated by the FCC as EBS and BRS spectrum (Educational Broadband Service/Broadcast Radio Se
  14. There are a few places that have coverage, but for some reason do not show up on Clear's Coverage Maps. I have added this sticky forum post to keep track of them. I will update this note as they appear (or disappear). Cloquet, Minnesota. The tower went live back in March 2011. It was initiallly on Clear's maps, but disappeared. The tower was recently confirmed as still operational, though not showing. You can view some of the coverage from Sensorly Android users at http://sensorly.com Allentown, Pennsylvania. I received an e-mail back in July that someone was able to get a WiMax sig
  15. Oops, sorry for the repost. :-( Sprint buys majority control of Clearwire Top Stories | Updated 1h 56m ago NEW YORK (AP) — Sprint is buying out the founder of Clearwire to gain majority control of the wireless network operator. Sprint's move follows a pledge by Japan's Softbank to infuse Sprint with cash by buying a majority stake in it. In a regulatory filing Thursday, Sprint Nextel said it will pay wireless pioneer Craig McCaw and his holding company $100 million for a 5 % stake in Clearwire, pushing Sprint's stake above 50%. Clearwire has the right to use a large

The problem for Sprint users, is that they are broadcasting their legacy Pre-WiMax signals here. Not WiMax. So your Sprint devices don't detect it!

  17. after seeing some of the photos of some of the towers out there and knowing what mine looks like I figured I'd post up a few shots of mine since i can get pretty close to it. Mine(crown castle site)personally looks like its used by everyone under the sun, but also is one of few ive seen that has old looking semi buildings next to it... Tower has WiMax and had it for a long long long time ever since I bought the EVO4G on launch day, though i didn't see anything marked "Clearwire".... If you save this pic and zoom in it looks like a complete cluster fk up there. lol This one you can see t
  18. FreedomPop announced today that they now have an agreement with Sprint to use their 3G and LTE network. They will initially launch using Clearwire's WiMax network. By the end of the year FreedomPop will start deploying sleeves with Sprint's 3G and LTE support. In 2013 FreedomPop will stop using Clearwire's network for Sprint's but may go back to Clearwire for extra capacity.

  20. I recently read an article saying Clearwire is starting a major move to LTE. With an expected reach of 5000 base stations in mid-2013 and another 3000 soon afterwards. My question is why. Why only deploy 8000 base stations. Lightsquared just failed in getting a new nationwide network built. This is Cleariwire's time to shine. Clearwire cloud easily sign all partners of Lightsquared to new deals. Then Clearwire can possibly make a network sharing deal with Sprint similar to the one made with Lightsquared. This would give Sprint more capacity which we know Sprint will need and offer a major thre

Clearwire Technologies raised at least $100 million and used it to acquire spectrum allocated to various educational institutions known as EBS or Educational Broadband Service. In 2007, Clearwire and Sprint Nextel announced a partnership to accelerate deployment of WiMAX technology across the US. In 2008, Sprint's new CEO Dan Hesse started serious discussions about forming a joint venture between the two com
