Sprint will use Samsung equipment: The tests will be in the 2.5 GHz band, a band which the combined Sprint-Nextel merged entity owns a large majority of in the U.S. This pre-standard testing of mobile WiMax may not yield practical results for a year or more. Still, it could allow Sprint to offer dramatically higher speeds than competitors because of the larger spectrum slices they possess. (Meanwhile, the FCC has proposed reorganizing that entire band, but that seems in abeyance at the moment, and might have been a Powell project.)
