in real terms youâll get 15Mbit/s for WiMAX and 3-4Mbit/s in HSDPA according to the techies I spoke to
Peak download rates of 326.4 Mbit/s for 4x4 antennas, and 172.8 Mbit/s for 2x2 antennas (utilizing 20 MHz of spectrum).
Peak upload rates of 86.4 Mbit/s for every 20 MHz of spectrum using a single antenna.
Sub-5 ms latency for small IP packets
In the 900 MHz frequency band to be used in rural areas, supporting an optimal cell size of 5 km, 30 km sizes with reasonable performance, and up to 100 km cell sizes supported with acceptable performance. In city and urban areas, higher frequency bands (such as 2.6 GHz in EU) are used to support high speed mobile broadband. In this case, cell sizes may be 1 km or even less.
Co-existence with legacy standards (users can transparently start a call or transfer of data in an area using an LTE standard, and, should coverage be unavailable, continue the operation without any action on their part using GSM/GPRS or W-CDMA-based UMTS or even 3GPP2 networks such as cdmaOne or CDMA2000)

Sounds better than WiMAX in every way :) The only reason why a carrier would choose WiMAX is if they didn't have a GSM or UMTS network already.
