Sprint, Clearwire Complete WiMAX Merger

Clearwire and Sprint Nextel have completed the combination of their wireless services in an effort to deploy a next-generation, 4G network across the country, PC Magazine reports.

“The deal closed according to the terms laid out in May, which includes a $3.2 billion cash infusion from Comcast, Intel, Time Warner Cable, Google and Bright House Networks,” the article said. “Sprint contributed all of its 2.5 GHz spectrum and its WiMAX-related assets, including its XOHM WiMAX business, to Clearwire.”

The mobile version of the service begins at $45 per month, and works primarily in Baltimore for the time being, with plans to expand further in the coming months.
