If the world is doing WiMax why is the only US cell provider doing it Sprint? Isn't Tmobile, AT&T, and VZW going the LTE route?

LTE does have some advantages: works at higher speeds than WiMax when you are moving [over 75mph] and has theoretical higher throughput speeds than WiMax.
Maybe Verizon and ATT had extra cash to burn on more expensive LTE gear?
