Well, between cashflow, AND a frequency that has almost twice the range as Sprints, verizon has a huge advantage coverage wise. PCS companies need almost 3 times the number of cell sites to cover the same area as cellular companies, so 700mhz vs 2500mhz is even worse.
Sprint I'm sure knows this though, and I think will build out to get into the home internet market. It would make too much sense to do it, they have tons of spectrum, they just need to dump tons of backhaul to the sites and advertise. . .
Here's a question for you guys. . . The LTE modems verizon has, and the WiMAX modems Sprint/Clear has. . . Does anyone know the max speed ratings on them? Like how HSPA is broken down to 3.6/7.2/14.4/21/42 etc. . . ? Just wondering what the bottleneck would be once they start putting gigabit lines in for backhaul. . .
