Clearwire Pulls Back on LTE

Posted by Kallan Dahn Friday, October 26, 2012

Clearwire has announced plans to reduce the amount of TD-LTE sites it will deploy by the summer of 2013. The new number will be 2,000 sites.  The halving of their plans comes as their retail sales are lackluster, and their wholesales channels are under-performing.  Analysts have made not of their transition away from WiMAX.  With reported losses of $320 Million Clearwire wants to realign their capital expenditures with the expected revenues it will receive from Sprint.  Sprint just announced their off-beat subscriber growth yesterday.  There will be no changes in Sprint's newly bolstered position in Clearwire.  The subscriber reduction to one of Clearwire's largest wholesale channels is most likely largely responsible for this announcement.
