Re: they need to pick one
I'm sure the hope was that WiMax would have such a large base that they could convince some of the regional carriers to adopt it as well. It didn't work that way and they're left with no one they can roam with.
However, they can't just switch overnight. They've been selling Wimax phones and dongles and have to support them for a reasonable amount of time. Fortunately, it's mostly early adopters who will be more than willing to switch fairly quickly, unlike the iDen base.
