The prinpical of lte is to allow the service provider to have 100% control of all data. In practice; You want to watch netflix, be prepared to pay extra. Want youtube, be prepared to pay extra. What to visit a website, be prepared to pay extra. The main reason wimax and lte are two different services is because lte, namely verizon and att, want to 100% control over every byte of thier services. They can not only limit what you can see, but specifically what apps you use. What to have navigation, lte can limit not only what you can download, but with lte, it can be easily blocked you from ever using the data at all. What to easy tether, lte can automatically block the internet connect the minute you hook up the machine. LTE was created to be carrier controlled and carrier formed internet. LTE is specifically created so the carrier has complete and legal control over ever byte of data. Wimax's first rule was any device for the whole interent. Wimax is web neutral, no legal website, service, or app can be blocked when using wimax. No service is given preferences. Only control of content is the carrier can use, is to limit degradation of the service and limit illegal content. To make this clear, any program, service, or user content never never be blocked when using wimax. Wimax is truly open. So I guess what you mean when you say you would drool over something, means you wish the carriers to have 100% control over every action you do online. " by BlackDynamite: "Just to clarify a few things... 1: Verizon has already said they will be changing the data as part of their new network management strategies. Among other things, they will be compressing pictures and videos, downgrading resolutions, sending mobile versions of websites, etc. 2: Metro PCS has flat out said they are charging extra for youtube. 3: The FCC has no problem with either of these things as it is totally allowed in the new net neutrality rules. Wireless carriers are pretty much allowed to do what they want under the new rules, while wired broadband is required to follow net neutrality. 4: Verizon wrote the new net neutrality rules. This little protest they are putting up is a sham. I can already see how it is going to go... Verizon puts up some fake little protest. They come to court with a weak case. The judge upholds the net neutrality rules. The goverment spins it as a victory for consumers. The general public buys it, thinking it must be good for consumers if Verizon didn't like it. Meanwhile, Verizon is filtering data left and right (funny they slipped that announcement in while the entire media was focused on Egypt). " is this true? will it happen?? LTE charging for youtube? and better data access? limiting resolution? limiting sites you can visit? if true... WiMax is looking so much better.. even if at a slower speed. but research says.. wimax has speed potential too!!!
