Sprint to close down iDEN network

Things aren’t looking up for iDEN network users, since Sprint CEO Dan Hesse just mentioned that his company will eventually shut down their iDEN network. This isn’t an option but will be carried out, although no timeline was attached to the process, and the shutting down will be performed gradually. This move was made to free up some channels to put CDMA services onto Sprint’s 800 MHz iDEN spectrum, at least that’s what Sprint’s head honcho says. Expect to see a slew of local and state municipalities looking for another wireless provider when the axe falls on the iDEN network.
