Sprint Evaluating LTE
Sprnt recently indicated at a public event that it is evaluating future technological choices for its core CDMA network. Mathew Oommen, Sprint's VP of device and technology development, said, "We want to future proof our network. We want to leverage all the assets we have in such a way that offers us the lowest cost per bit." Sprint said that it "open" to LTE. Sprint's WiMax partner, Clearwire, has recently said that it will standardize on the best technology, and can switch to LTE if it needs to. "There's nothing that prevents us from... moving to LTE," said Kevin Packingham, senior VP of product and technology development at Sprint, speaking at the LTE event. "We're doing a technology evaluation and making a decision on our core network and how we want to evolve that going forward." Sprint has submitted a request for proposal (RFP) from many of the world's wireless networking technology companies in order for it to evolve its CDMA network. If it were to switch from CDMA to LTE, that would make it the fourth major U.S. carrier to choose the new standard. Sprint hasn't made up its mind.

Smart to go with LTE
WIMAX is easily upgradable or should I say convertable to LTE with software upgrades/changes. Sprint is way ahead of the curve for tomorrows technology.
The Here and Now...
Verizon is talking about what they will be delivering next year or so...Sprint will be delivering next month. I personally will be jumping on the HTC Evo bandwagon on June 4th. Who's with me???
WiMAX IS THE FUTURE

Have fun with your slower iPhone for quite a while.
1) It allows a choice between LTE or WiMAX.
2) Acts as a governor for LTE.
Personally, I don't understand the hate for WiMAX. LTE and...

Making sure it works correctly, testing, ironing out the bugs need to be done before anyone can think of jumping on an Olympic sized pool with just an inch of water. 😉
