Does it matter? It's the same horse with a different name. If the other carriers chose WiMAX and Sprint chose LTE, would individuals have a different opinion on WiMAX?

I happen to be enjoying a great experience through WiMAX. Video Chat works really well, speed is fast, data is ample and the price plan is very affordable.

Those waiting on LTE, are people missing out on an equal opportunity to use WiMAX until LTE is deployed. This is a loss on everyone's part that could enjoy it, but choose not to.

While it is said all good things come to those that wait, WiMAX is a great alternative.

If you're an individual that likes to support a team no matter whether they win or lose, just remember, your team isn't on the field yet.

There basically the same, here is the issue. Proviers using LTE has very little spectrum for LTE, thus it will be bottlenecked and the reason they will put caps on it as the CEO of verizon stated. Sprint has 10x the spectrum so no caps or bottlenecks
As a consumer, I do NOT represent any carrier on an employee level. So I have nothing to gain or lose when I make this next suggestion:

It is being reported that Teliasonera, the world's first LTE network, is already reporting an average of 15gigs ...
Where did this come from? Left field?

Not impressed, T-Mobile 4G is running faster

So I'm from Sacramento and I just did a speed test on my Evo and it would not go over 2.5mbps while my roommate is getting 6mbps on his G2.

I'm dissapointed Sprint, I had been waiting a while for this. 😡
drive around and see who gets 4G in more places. I have a G2 as well, and i just picked up the clear hotspot last week. Coverage for tmobile 4g is horrible compared to Clears.
Btw i went to Downtown plaza mall store to try it out and ended up signin...
How can you be disappointed with roughly 3-4 times the speed you had before?

Also, these speeds will most likely increase within the month as the fine tuning gets finalized.

Go somewhere away from a city and see who has a mobile signal--period! Even 1X is better than the nothing you'll see with T-Mobile.
