Sprint WiMAX plan back on

U.S. mobile operator Sprint Nextel is back in serious talks with erstwhile WiMAX partner Clearwire, according to various sources from accross the Atlantic. This time, however, any new partnership would likely involve investment from other parties - Google and Intel have been most frequently named as potential candidates.

Sprint and Clearwire dissolved their WiMAX partnership last November, reportedly because of difficulties financing the project. The mobile operator's new CEO Dan Hesses has been under pressure to clarify Sprint's position regarding its planned $5 billion WiMAX network rollout since he took over from Gary Forsee late last year.
