Sprint had an obligation to allocate their spectrum holdings for use or lose it before LTE was ever offered commercially. WiMAX was already culminated in many markets across the globe. Sprint was not about to lose a valuable asset so they chose WiMAX. LTE was already anticipated to be the world standard so Dan Hesse announced in a keynote that WiMAX would give them "first to market" 4G service and retain their spectrum holdings plus give them the option to switch to LTE. Since WiMAX and LTE are basically the same technology, Sprint made a wise choice in spite of what people think.
