  • Will Clearwire auction off valuable spectrum? 0 comments
    Oct 13, 2010 3:23 PM | about stocks: S
     We've been following Clearwire on for a long time, wondering whether its WiMAX network will make a lot of money from subscribers. But one of the things we've been looking at closely too for a few years has been the company's spectrum portfolio. As Paul Kapustka, wireless analyst, writes:

    "Clearwire’s spectrum assets were an undervalued crown jewel, one that the company may now be using to help raise anywhere from $2.5 billion to $5 billion in order to keep funding its ambitious network buildout. In fact, a little over a year ago we called those assets the crown jewels, and explained then that Clearwire had so much spectrum compared to other providers that it could launch a wide WiMAX network, have enough spectrum left over to launch a wide LTE network, and then still have enough spectrum to sell or rent some spare airwaves to fund its ongoing operations."
