According to Clearwire's CEO Bill Morrow, the company has no immediate plans to change its networking technologies, despite the recent change in its agreement with Intel that would let it switch to Long Term Evolution from WiMax as soon as this year. Here's what Morrow said regarding the agreement: "We won't be deploying LTE anytime soon and definitely not before 2012. But it does give us greater flexibility."
He also indicated that the company intends to make T-Mobile USA a wholesale customer of its network, but downplayed T-Mobile's HSPA+ network: "As a competitor, we know that the HSPA+ cost structure is not sustainable for scalable mobile broadband services. So HSPA is a Band-Aid for carriers who are using it until they get to a full IP network, which will change the cost structure."
