The Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) has "frozen" the development of Long Term Evolution as part of Release 8. This means the LTE standard is essentially set, and the 3GPP will ratify the final version in March 2009. This won't stop the 3GPP from fine-tuning the standard to improve performance, but it will allow equipment manufacturers and network operators to move forward with their plans to deploy LTE networks. U.S. carriers AT&T, Verizon Wireless and others have committed to using LTE as their next-generation network technology.

They have seen the light!

It always amazes me that companies can denounce a technology(WiMax) as non-threatening, yet eloquence materializes once the fear factor gels into a realization. WiMax is the push that 4G needed to bring LTE to light. No screwing around, no bickering, no wishy-washy decisions, no more underestimating. Just get the product done and out there or loose ground on an evolution. Thank you WiMax! You have already won no matter what the world standard is. Once again, Sprint pushes a technical advancement into reality sooner rather than later.
