ABSTRACT
The article reports that mobile operator Sprint Nextel Corp. will scrap its agreement with Clearwire Corp. to jointly build a nationwide high-speed wireless network based on Wimax technology. It is reported that the two companies could not resolve complexities associated with their July 2008 co-signed agreement and failed to reach final agreement on the terms of the transaction. According to Julien Grivolas, senior analyst at Ovum, the fact that Sprint could potentially downsize its Wimax plans is bad news for Wimax in general.
