And we will all benefit from having one mobile broadband technology in the future. In the next 6 to 7 years, all the carriers will have an exclusive or near exclusive LTE network for voice and data. Consumers will win with that in the long run. More device choices and probably carrier choices and interoperability.

 

But I'm still sad for WiMax.
