So! Sprint just made it official that they will be rolling out 4G LTE, and basically slowly backing away from their current 4G network, WiMax. What does that mean for you?
What's happening to Sprint's WiMAX network?
It will be expanding through 2012, and then it's slowly going to go away. By the end of 2012 WiMax will be covering 120 million people. That figure remains the same for 2013. No growth = death. It will be enveloped and eventually replaced by LTE. (In case you're wondering what WiMax and LTE are, read our explainer.)
