Sprint expects to shutter at least 6,000 cell sites as it makes plans to shut down WiMAX service by the end of 2015. Sprint has long said it would maintain WiMAX service through 2015, but has not given many details on what exactly it will do with the network after that date.
Sprint is currently working with erstwhile suitor Dish Network on a trial of TD-LTE fixed wireless broadband service using Sprint's 2.5 GHz spectrum. However, analysts think there are plenty of opportunities for the companies to either expand the trial more broadly or work together in other ways that make use of their respective spectrum assets.
Sprint, the nation's third largest wireless operator, is largely finished with the mammoth Network Vision network modernization project it started more than three years ago. The result, however, is an LTE service that only covers around 200 million people and is, by most measurements, the nation's slowest. Compare this to T-Mobile, which covered roughly the same number of people with LTE in half the time as Sprint with speeds that often rank at or near the top. And T-Mobile is enjoying significant momentum thanks to its "uncarrier" branding. Nonetheless, Sprint executives are arguing that 2014 is "th e year" for Sprint. I think that remains to be seen.
