With rival LightSquared running into interference, Clearwire sees an even bigger opportunity for itself to offer a 4G network to others.

“Our spectrum is clean, it’s contiguous, it’s deep and it doesn’t suffer from interference issues,” CEO Erik Prusch said in an interview at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

It’s been a rough go for Clearwire, however. In addition to shifting its focus from one wireless technology to another, Clearwire has also cut costs, pared its workforce and outsourced some network operations to Ericsson.

For the last few years European regulators have been pushing mobile companies to slash the roaming charges they slap on customers who cross the continent’s borders. Although operators have grumbled and griped about lost profits, for the most part they have taken the hits. Apparently, though, the gloves are now off.

At a press briefing held at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Vodafone boss Vittoria Colao said that it was time for the cuts to stop. According to The Guardian, Colao told reporters that the more the regulation stops mobile companies charging users what they like, the less investment mobile companies will make in their networks.
