WiMax is looking better everyday..

While Sprint has left the door open for LTE, the offset in choosing WiMax will be far better in having true unlimited. It has already been stressed that WiMax will remain unlimited. This is the true beauty of operating on a higher frequency. It handles data transfer far better than lower.

That may be true but you'll need more capital to build more towers to cover the same area.

it is always better to embrace the advantages of what WiMax has to offer. Those that seek the very best, often underestimate what the less expensive have to offer.

Can you explain how higher frequencies handle data transfer better than lower ? These are 'RF' frequencies that we're talking about here, not audio.

I am not an engineer or scientist. However, I can probably point out an example. If you ever talk on a cordless phone with higher frequencies, you may notice a considerable more pleasant voice call. Clear, smooth and afticulate. This is because they are not as effected by everyday electromagnetic noise traveling through air. It is more resistive to these elements The trade off is shorter transmission distance. Noise greatly effects the transmission of calls. Data is no different than voice. There is alot of scientific equations that go into wireless transmissions and the frequencies they are transmitted on. VZW has allocated the best spectrum for building penetration and the least amount of tower infrastructure. The problem is during peak pe...
