Clearwire's Sievert talks about selling spectrum and testing LTE

with Mike Sievert, Chief Commercial Officer at ClearwireMobile WiMAX advocate and network operator Clearwire (NASDAQ:CLWR)  set off shockwaves when it announced in August that it would test LTE technology in Phoenix, a move that was seen by many as signaling the end of WiMAX. Although it has only been a few months since the LTE testing started, Clearwire Chief Commercial Officer Mike Sievert sat down with FierceBroadbandWireless Editor in Chief Sue Marek after his 4G World keynote to discuss the company's LTE testing, the company's complicated relationship with Sprint Nextel (Sprint owns 54 percent of Clearwire but also competes with Clearwire for customers), and Clearwire's reported spectrum auction.  Article
