> Sprint Nextel plans to terminate its 15-year contract with the foundering wireless broadband effort on Friday and return $65 million in prepayments, according to The Wall Street Journal. The cancellation would leave Lightsquared without a major partner for its effort to build a national wireless broadband network using satellite spectrum.
