Clearwire Could Ditch WiMAX For LTE Before Even Giving It A Real Chance - WiMax - Gizmodo And since Cleariwre is owned by Sprint you can expect Sprint to be doing the same thing. This would mean that the EVO 4g's support will dwindle to nothing as they stop building out WiMax infrastructure and actually convert the existing infrastructure to support LTE. With that in mind, I'm really worried about the viability of the EVO. If Sprint stops building out their WiMax network in favor of LTE than the main selling point of this phone becomes moot. What do you guys think? Would people be better off going with the Incredible and just dong an upgrade in a year when Verizon's LTE phones are out and their network is online, or should they take a risk on the EVO that might end up not having a 4g network to support it a year from now.
