Flarion, sooner than later

If you paid any attention to Nextel’s third quarter earnings, then you could have picked up enough clues to see that that Flarion deployment would happen much sooner than expected. Nextel is ramping up its capital expenditure, because the network is getting crowded as more folks are signing up for Nextel’s service. iDEN is not going to cut it, and the company has started throwing its resources in making Flarion as a centerpiece of its future strategy. Flarion has the potential to increase the network efficiency, along with bringing real high-speed data services to Nextel customers.
