Sprint was due to shut down its WiMax network yesterday, although the company did not manage to shut it down, as it was ordered by a judge in the US to keep the network running.
Sprint is facing a lawsuit from nonprofit groups in the US, who have said that the company has made it impossible for them to switch from WiMax to LTE easily.
The judge dealing with the case has ordered Sprint to keep their WiMax network running until the lawsuit against it by the nonprofit organizations has been resolved.
Sprint will now have to wait until the lawsuit can be resolved or they can come to agreement with the company’s before they can shut down their WiMax network.
