re: Sprint's Backhaul Bottleneck
Unstrung, shame on you for glibly re-reporting Sprint's excuses without even the slightest hint of journalistic questioning. The idea that Sprint has been suddenly taken by surprise by the fact that 4G sites might need more backhaul than a T1 is frankly laughable. And given they like the rest of the industry are in the midst of a nationwide program to upgrade backhaul at existing cellsites, it's pretty easy to order a few extra microwave backhaul radios for their 4G sites. Methinks the delay relates to the WiMAX part of the equation in some way (presumably limited availablity of device chipsets or network instability) and Sprint is just protecting the WiMAX brand with as utterly boring an excuse as they can think off (cf. the negative advertising job done to WCDMA when the Joe public media picked up the '3G doesn't work' story after initial delays).
