    Sprint to Officially Announce LTE Service Later this Month, Claims Report


    A recent report from CNET, suggests that later this month, Sprint will officially confirm the rumors we've been hearing about for months now. The report says that on July 28th, Sprint will announce they have signed a partnership with LightSquared to provide LTE 4G service to Sprint's network of customers. Interestingly, the report also said that Sprint doesn't plan on discontinuing the ClearWire WiMAX network and will continue to support it in the future. This is partially due to the fact that Sprint owns a 54% stake in ClearWire. In fact, ClearWire itself has been testing LTE in addition to its existing WiMAX infrastructure. The report indicated that this was all possible because Sprint's network is able to handle multiple wireless technologies simultaneously. It appears that even in the face of scary competition, Sprint is really stepping up their game and are looking good!

    Ok, so now they want to switch to LTE but continue supporting their current network. What happens to all the people who bought a 4g Wi-MAX phone with the promise of getting service in the near future. Are they essentially left in the dust? I know I would be very upset if I was paying $10 extra per month in hopes of getting 4g, only to find out that my phone would never get the proper 4g service.

    Just remember, Sprint still has some non CDMA network areas they have to support.

    I imagine there'll be some kind of exchange program -- or the people who bought a phone for a functionality that didn't exist yet will learn a hard lesson.
