Sprint has been working hard on building out its 4G WiMax network. One of the biggest cities that the pin-dropping network is still working on is New York City, a big business metropolis, but also a city considered the world's most important media center. A location like that would seem to be extremely important for a carrier rolling out its fastest and most compelling network.
The video below shows off one of the areas in the Big Apple where 4G service already exists and you can see what goes into putting together cellular service in a city like New York. Some of you might find it interesting, but the most important message that comes out clearly from the video is that 4G is coming to all of New York City-and soon.
Why is this company wasting so much money on this crapy 4g service when there looking to venture in to LTE, Dan Hesse needs to make up his mind on what 4g service sprint will get behind full force.....Shit T-Mobiles HSPA+ is faster than there crapy 4g..LMAO

WiMax is cheaper to roll out and easily and cheaply converted to LTE anyway. On top of that, you have the ability to ugrade WiMax to much better speeds that LTE later on.
Regardless, the main motivation I see from Sprint is to beat everyone else to market with 4G [or 3.5, or whatever it should really be called] to capture more subscribers to move into the black.
