Sprint Nextel, the first U.S. carrier to roll out a 4G network, is considering changing its 4G strategy in a way that could encourage a merger with T-Mobile, according to a July 12 report from the Financial Times.

T-Mobile just recently announced its new WebConnect Rocket USB Modem capable to reach speeds up to 21Mbps while Sprint already offers WiMax service for quite a while. PCWorld has compared both services in mayor cities like Las Vegas and Philadelphia.
About the WebConnect Rocket : T-Mobile’s first HSPA+ modem is even faster than the WiMAX devices we tested. But T-Mobile needs to provide a clear picture of their service plans and network buildout before we jump on board.
About Sprint Modem : If you’re connecting with Sprint, there’s no reason to get a 3G-only modem any more. Step up to a 3G/WiMAX combo with the U301—just don’t expect too much of WiMAX.
