Clearwire CEO: ‘We want to be the Switzerland of mobile broadband’

Erik Prusch

Clearwire CEO Erik Prusch says that the company is talking to ATT, Verizon and others about entering into wholesale agreements, deals which could assist the Kirkland mobile broadband company as it looks to raise money roll out a LTE or long-term evolution network.

Bloomberg reports that the company is in several discussions with potential customers who would use the company’s network, but sell services under their own brand names.

“We’re talking with everybody,” said Prusch. “We want to be the Switzerland of mobile broadband.”

Sprint Nextel owns about 54 percent of Clearwire, and Bloomberg reported last month that the wireless carrier was considering buying the company outright.

Shares of Clearwire are down about five percent today. They are off 54 percent of the year, with Clearwire now boasting a market value of $2.1 billion.
