    Hesse Finally Gets it: Unlimited 100mb LTE

    ... from sprint subject to the contractural guarantees. What got eliminated in the 12/1 agreement is volume surcharges, which was (reportedly) why sprint axed the unlimited 4G for devices other than handsets. Now, no matter how much data a subscriber crams down a WiMax pipe, sprint pays nary a dime more for the volume... which was the whole idea behind Clearwire's mega-capacity anyway and I've no problem with that... especially if sprint exploits it to the advantage of both companies.

    WiMax subs will continue to grow... hopefully well given sprint's i-phone diversion. We forget, sometimes, how technology-blind the average subscriber IS out there given our knowledge on this board...

    ... but Clearwire's 1.9 million new subscribers eclipsed Verizon's "overall" 1.2 million net-new simply because while the majority of subscribers relate to words like "4G" and "unlimited"... it's a little tougher for them to appreciate what "LTE" means relative to "WiMax"... especially since nobody throws the WiMax word around much out there in the phone shops.

    WiMax will do reasonably OK until LTE lights up, IMHO.
