Go ahead and read the very first sentence of this article written almost a year ago.
19 metro areas huh?
Good luck on that 2 year plan.
Oh agree on WiMax not being pushed forward. i am just saying that the best solution would be to leave the existing infrastructure in place for the next 4-5 years and leverage it with dual access load balanced devices.
As for LTE rollout, 19 metro areas NOW, 100 in progress and coming online daily. I'm not sure why you think 2 years isn;t completely reasonable.. because it is. By two years I mean, two FULL years. not the beginning of 2014, closer to the very end.
You'll start to see it pop up in LA before the end of the year.
