US operator Sprint Nextel has launched a new Wholesale 4G program that will see it open its WiMAX network to wholesale partners like Mitel Networks, so they can resell mobile broadband access. The move has been seen as an indication that Sprint is not about to renege on its WiMAX agreement with Clearwire. Sprint has been linked to a future move to LTE technology at the expense of its current WiMAX/Clearwire plans.
