Sprint slated to take down 9,600 iDEN towers by October

Sprint has recently announced more plans to decommission their iDEN network. They have now said that they have selected vendors throughout the country to remove Sprint’s equipment from cell towers and base stations fro recycling and re-use.

Sprint has also said that they plan to decommission 9,600 iDEN towers by the end of the third quarter. This would coincide with their recent cease of iDEN handset offering, wherein they have begun transitioning Push-To-Talk users to their PTT DirectConnect service, which is CDMA based. The iDEN network should be fully decommissioned by June 30, 2012, according to Sprint.
