    What is your point? That it works as advertised in a small footprint of Baltimore? If yes then you are right Gary’s article is great – though how it is interesting I don’t get. Sprint EVDO is better than AT&T 3G — we know that. That’s why we love Sprint EVDO.

  2. No, Rolf is right. Real 4G is 100Mbps. Right now WiMAX as deployed doesn’t offer that, but it is theoretically capable of it — just like LTE. So, it is as fair to list WiMAX as 4G as it is LTE. The same thing happened with 3G. People were calling their CDMA variants 3G long before they achieved the required 2Mbps speeds.

    I would take those result by Gary with a grain of salt. Real world speed will depends on number of people being supported by the sector. Also, speed offered by Wimax will not hold under mobile condition, like driving in a car or riding a bus. Since Xohm network is new in Baltimore, there aren’t as many subscribers as compared to 3G in the sector. Once the network is loaded, we can compare the speeds. 3G networks like HSPA/EVDO are designed for utmost mobility and wont cringe under hard conditions.
