Techopedia explains Wideband Integrated Dispatch Enhanced Network (WiDEN)
Because of the upgrades it brought, WiDEN was anticipated to become the next step for Nextel Communications as it offered greater flexibility than the CDMA network being run by Sprint, where users had problems surfing the Internet using CDMA-enabled phones. But the Sprint Nextel merger came and CDMA was used in favor of WiDEN, which was eventually decommissioned in October 2005. The original iDEN network was later decommissioned by Sprint on June 30, 2013, and the spectrum used by iDEN was reused for the Sprint LTE network.
