Sprints adds a pair of 4G routers to their portfolio
Sprint announced two new 4G products today, the Sprint Personal Hotspot PHS300S and Cradlepoint MBR-1000 Broadband Router for business.  When used in conjunction with a 4G USB card such as the U300, these routers will provide Wi-Fi connectivity for up to 4 and 32 users, respectively.  The devices will set you back a pretty penny- $160 for the PHS300S and $250 for the MBR-1000- but are available via business sales, telesales and sprint.com.  The PHS300S is also available at select Sprint retail locations within 4G coverage, aka Baltimore.

Actually it is considered 4G. The definition of 4G allows WiMAX, an IP based wireless broadband technology to be added to that category. Furthermore there is no such thing as 3.5G. You have to remember 4G just stands for fourth generations and has no input on actual speed but WiMAX will be cable speeds while being totally wireless.

this tech will not technically be as fast as LTE but its about as fast as your cable modem connection, wirelessly. if you are lucky enough to live in one of the first areas like baltimore, you will have enough speed to game-online on the run faster than most people can do plugged into the wall. While I have little doubt that LTE will crush it in the end (especially concidering just about all phone companies are going to it, so the coverage should be incredible).

wait patiently for your LTE then compare speeds
