Clearwire Scales Back LTE Deployment, as Planned

Clearwire plans to have 2,000 Long Term Evolution sites on air by the end of June 2013 and expects to start receiving Sprint prepayment installments in June 2013. That plan is a reduction in sites from the earlier plan to light about 5,000 LTE sites.

Clearwire has decided not to attempt to create a full national LTE network, but instead will focus on a smaller number of markets where Clearwire could hope to provide wholesale service to other carriers.
