MENLO PARK, August 8, 2006 (Podtech News) — Sprint Nextel today announced plans to develop and deploy a nationwide wireless broadband mobile network using WiMAX. Sprint said it will work with Intel on mobile WiMAX-enabled chipsets and with Motorola and Samsung on devices. PodTech’s Catherine Girardeau talked with Chris Thomas, Chief of Staff to Intel’s Executive Office, about Intel’s role.

Reporter’s Notes:

Some interesting blogosphere buzz about WiMax: Katie Fehrenbacher on GigaOm wonders how Clearwire will fit in. Carlo writes in Techdirt notes the timing of Sprint’s announcement, with the AWS spectrum auction just around the corner. Mobile Tracker points out that up and download speed will make or break WiMAX’s ability to

compete with DSL and cable modems. I wonder if Sprint Nextel’s announcement will have any impact on the network neutrality debate.
