请教个问题:

 

Sprint Nextel plans to merge its wireless broadband division with Clearwire Corporation to form a new company where it seems to develop a high-speed wireless Internet service.

 

这句中where引导的定语从句修饰的是哪个词?是a new company吗?总觉得很别扭。

 

我听的是......a new company racing to......

 

另外,我也查了资料,在美国,各个mobile service provider确实都在竞争to establish a nationwide mobile broadband network,所以上文的race我想是讲得通的,不知道各位听友认为如何?

 

3Q~~谢谢您的指正,希望您多来NPR指导 ——April
