Yota Dumping WiMax for LTE

Russian internet provider Yota has given up on plans to launch a 15-city WiMax network this year and will instead invest $100 million to roll out Long Term Evolution across five Russian cities before the end of 2010. In September 2009, Clearwire, along with Russia's Yota and UQ Communications of Japan, all agreed to work together on the business and technical pieces of their respective WiMax businesses so that they may support international roaming in the future. Yota's peers haven't commented on how this change in wireless networking technology will alter their agreement, but it is clear U.S. customers of Clearwire's WiMax services will not be able to roam on WiMax in Russia. Clearwire and its business partner Sprint have both separately hinted that a switch from WiMax to LTE is a possibility.
