Clearwire's LTE Rollout Coming to NYC, SF, Seattle and Chicago

Clearwire's LTE Rollout Coming to NYC, SF, Seattle and Chicago, early 2013

 

CLEAR and Sprint have announced that they are throwing in the towel on their 4G WiMAX network (still will work in limited areas that have it - BUT there will be NO NEW WiMAX cities ever), but instead are going to convert their spectrum over from WiMAX to LTE.  Actually, it is called TDD-LTE, which is a new standard of LTE that can run on the WiMAX frequency of 2600MHZ.

The initial rollout schedule will include New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles , Seattle and Chicago.
