Sprint to Invest Another Billion into WiMax 4G



+ Add a Comment


I guess this is part of the reason sprint needs to lay off more workers.  I see that Verizon and AT&T are going with LTE.  If the rest of the world is following suite there, then Sprint is already doomed.



Except the rest of the world is not following suit. WiMax is currently deployed in over 145 countries. By the time LTE becomes reality (currently vapor ware) WiMax will be 2nd generation with speeds of 1 Gbps and will be available to roughly 1 billion people by end of next year. I would say the rest of the world is following Sprint and Intels lead on 4G as WiMax exists now while LTE does not. Sounds to me Sprint is the one that has made the sound investment strategy, not ATT or Verizon.
