That's what I was wondering: How long they'll continue to support WIMAX. Realistically, lots of people will still be using WIMAX up to 2015 maybe if they are buying devices midway through 2012 and can't renew until 2014. Their statement just says they are going to LTE and will stop supporting WIMAX, but don't say anything about when they'll stop supporting WIMAX.
