Sprint and WiMAX news

This article reports that Sprint is considering a merger with Clearwire. The two companies had collaborated on the construction of a nation wide wireless network.

Are you surprised that we are seeing consolidation already? Do you think that a merger like this would act as a significant deterrent for potential new entrants into WiMAX?

Update (2007-11-09): According to this article in the Wall Street Journal (via Forbes), Sprint and Clearwire are not combining their networks after all. Do you think that this is a good strategic move for them? What about for consumers?
