Sprint CEO on WiMAX

The CEO of Sprint has remained mute on the subject of a merged WiMAX network, despite expectations, Reuters notes. Some media outlets had speculated that Dan Hesse would use this week's CTIA Wireless conference to announce a completed deal with Clearwire, but no mention of this was made during a keynote speech. A few outlets had also proposed that Hesse would reveal funding deals with the likes of Intel, Google, Comcast and Time Warner.

An agreement between Sprint and Clearwire is considered by many to be essential for the success of WiMAX, as the companies have been constructing separate networks that may otherwise force users to pay costly roaming fees, discouraging early adoption.

Hesse has however confirmed the company's commitment to expanding its own WiMAX service, Xohm, which is due to become public later this month, and move beyond the regions of Chicago, Baltimore and Washington D.C. this summer.
