Clearwire directors said Wednesday that they were reviewing a new offer of $4.40 per share from DISH Network that tops Sprint Nextel's recently sweetened offer by 29%, a move that gives a choice to shareholders who have publicly criticized Sprint's bid as inadequate. Clearwire shareholders were scheduled to vote on the Sprint takeover offer Friday. In a statement, DISH Chairman Charlie Ergen said Clearwire's spectrum was a "key component" of DISH's plans to build a national wireless network.
