Actually the major thought for Sprint when deciding to go to the Wimax format was a lot more simple then that. Basically they were given a time frame in which they had to use the spectrum they are currently using for the Wimax network. IF they didn't use that spectrum in time then they would have been forced to forfeit(sp) it. To put it a simple as possible... Wimax technology was ready to deploy within the time frame where as LTE still hadn't gone through enough testing to be ready to launch in time to keep the rights to the spectrum.
