Clearwire CEO sees no threat from LTE

“LTE is going to have some disadvantages,” says Bill Morrow, Clearwire CEO. Speaking to about the potential ‘threat’ from LTE in light of Verizon’s plans to roll out the rival ‘4G’ technology in 20 to 30 US markets by the end of next year, he adds: “Verizon is going to launch with a pre-standard technology, so it’s not going to be very easy for the device and infrastructure manufacturers to create something in terms of scale. There is also the problem of converting pre-standard equipment [once the standard has been settled].”
