Slightly faster than TD-LTE and TDA-LTE but not quite true 4G like LTE-Advanced.

This is incorrect. TDD-LTE is the same as TD-LTE. TDD simply refers to time division duplex which is suitable for the unpaired spectrum that Clearwire has. What Clearwire will be deploying is 3GPP Release 10 a.k.a LTE Advanced or "true" 4G.

Reeeally? This will be equivalent to
LTE-A? Does that mean average user speeds of 100mb/s?!?!?

What sorta real-world speeds can people expect?
20-30mb/s?

It's the type of carrier signal.

For example, CDMA = Code Division Multiple Access
TDMA= Time Division Multiple Access

GSM is based on Frequency division or FDD

The LTE brought to you by Verizon and ATT is FDD-LTE. In other words the carrier signals are divided by frequency allocation.

Clear is using TDD-LTE. It's carrier signal will be split using Time Division.

TDD-LTE is supposed to be much faster than FDD-LTE but we won't know exactly until the network is up and running.

TDD-LTE is NOT compatible with FDD-LTE.

Over simplified but I hope that helps.

No matter whet that means? Clearwire does not have the money to build a true nationwide network. There will be large holes in there coverage just like wimax.

You misunderstand the intent of Clearwire's TD-LTE deployment, and the Phone Scoop article does an inadequate job of explaining a key detail about it.

Clearwire is deploying TD-LTE "hot zones" for capacity offload from other LTE networks (e.g. Sprint, MetroPCS, Cricket, et al.). It is not building a "true nationwide network," so that is not relevant. And, of course, "there will be large holes in there [sic] coverage." Indeed, that is the design of the "hot zone" deployment. It is not intended as a standalone TD-LTE network but ...

No, I am not Clearwire CEO Erik Prusch. Unlike you, BigRed75, I am not affiliated with any wireless carrier. And, unlike you, I am highly knowledgeable about the wireless industry because of more than a decade of research.

You went to college to learn how fast you can download internet porn? Eh?

But thanks a lot for all the serious replies, this helps me see what's going on here pretty well.
