The article offers the author's insights on network technology migration in Sprint Nextel Corp. The author mentions that the company's 4th generation (4G) migration is apparently stable due to its 56% shareholding at Clearwire Corp. and partnership with WiMAX network. Moreover, Sprint Nextel will face a network migration challenge if it would change Clearwire's technology of code division multiple access (CDMA) into long-term evolution (LTE).
