another nail

in WiMax's coffin. Its not that I have an issue with the technology, because that would be about the dumbest stance ever taken. Its just that I saw this coming a while ago. Sputters and fits while rolling out WiMax in the US, and now Russia's plans fall apart. Unfortunately WiMax, despite its advantages, is going to have one helluva uphill climb to be the dominant 4G tech.

Where is the first nail?? What are those "sputters and fits"? Last I checked, Sprint will have a 120 million 4G footprint by years end. Verizon will not have 4G until mid-2011 at the earliest. At&t will not have 4G until sometime in 2012, so... who is climbing a hill? Rolling Eyes

WiMAX doesn't need to be the dominant 4G variant. It just needs to be a viable choice. And as it currently stands, it is the only choice. Wink

I like the analogy you chose, because it's the very same one I thought to myself before hitting the Comment link. Bye bye WiMax, methinks.
