    Sprint's Clear Wimax good till at least 2015?

    In this comment a Freedom Pop customer service rep mentions that Sprint doesn't intend to phase out the WiMax support until 2015.

    However, this was obviously prior to Softbank takeover of Sprint. Sprint is now in the process of deploying 2.5GHz LTE nationwide on Sprint's network to replace WiMAX and in addition to Sprint's new 800MHz / 1900MHz LTE. Testing of this new LTE service on WiMAX's 2.5GHz spectrum via S4GRU has yeilded much better performance vs the old WiMAX service.

    I recall reading some article about upgrades to LTE hardware for FreedomPop customers.
