Почитал. С одной стороны,

Let’s start with the genesis of the two technologies.WiMax is based on a IEEE standard (802.16), and like that other popular IEEE effort, Wi-Fi, it’s an open standard that was debated by a large community of engineers before getting ratified. In fact, we’re still waiting on the 802.16m standard for faster mobile WiMax to be ratified. The level of openness means WiMax equipment is standard and therefore cheaper to buy — sometimes half the cost and sometimes even less. Depending on the spectrum alloted for WiMax deployments and how the network is configured, this can mean a WiMax network is cheaper to build.

С другой стороны,

Fred Wright, an SVP that handles 4G networks for Motorola, believes LTE will be the standard chosen by 80 percent of the carriers in the world

У WiMAX фора в два года, и оборудование _уже_ доступно. При этом, принципиального преимущества по скорости у LTE нет.

However, LTE will take time to roll out, with deployments reaching mass adoption by 2012 . WiMax is out now, and more networks should be available later this year. As for speeds, LTE will be faster than the current generation of WiMax, but 802.16m that should be ratified in 2009 is fairly similar in speeds.

С третей стороны, если государство защитит инвестиции российских компаний в ваймакс, то LTE может просто не получить частот у нас.

Что до моего скромного _мнения_ - я считаю, что проприетарные технологии "связистов" должны умереть. В жопу все их "сигнализации", ATM, SS7, и H.323. И я надеюсь, что этот тренд продолжится.
