Clearwire in WiMAX talks

Clearwire has indeed resumed talking with Sprint about merging the two companies' WiMAX networks, Reuters reports. The information comes directly from Clearwire CEO Ben Wolff, who says that negotations are not only active, but have made progress. The companies are also said to be collaborating in areas beyond merging, though Wolff is refusing to elaborate on details. He has also declined to comment on whether Sprint and Clearwire's WiMAX assets would be merged with outside investments, as suggested by the Wall Street Journal.

Wolff will add that the companies have agreed on a standardized network architecture, which will allow customers of one company to continue using WiMAX when in the other company's domain. The two outfits were previously facing the prospect of running in limited sections of the US, or else paying for their own, separate national networks.
