So

If Clearwire only deploys these kind of speeds in the core parts of major cities what difference will it make. By than at&t and Verizon ought to be built out nationwide. Upgrading to LTE advance wont be a big deal for the major two carriers with big pockets. Time will tell?

Your premise on the right track, but Clearwire is closer to being a company like RCN (bankrupt) than a Tmobile or Sprint.. and probably RCN had deeper pockets than Clearwire (in the beginning) but hit regulatory roadblock after roadblock.. then the venture capital money got sucked back into the wallet. You have to remember tech money isn't as big as OIL money.. and the average tech venture capitalist (aside from anomolies like Facebook, Vonage) don't go out of their way to rip off consumers.. a further distinction.. the rest of the wireless industry?

RCN's roadblock was it's proven that overbuilding does NOT work. And that was their thing- overbuilding.

And actually Sprint is pretty well tied with Clear as far as going bankrupt- Remember they have little to ZERO cash after spending it on the iPhone. That's the whole issue with the Dan and the BoD. He's spending money on that while trying to build a LTE network that will never really see the light of day with no cash to put into it.

Clear could very well build their network and out preform them all in the end.

Spewing the same crap over and over again won't make it true...

It's not crap. Overbuilding does NOT work. - proven time and time again.

And Dan did cause the money problem with Spent. He spent MORE money than then the iPhone was worth- to the point where Sprint said over and over again that it was their cash reserves that were spent. That money being spent should cause Dan to get canned- as his deal with Metro that he tried to get go through. His company is tanking and he's watching doing nothing- but spending more money.

It's also been proven that Verizon is losing landlines at a much slower rate (and gaining broadband subscribers) in FiOS areas. While the FiOS penetration rate may not be what Verizon had hoped it is rising slowly but surely in areas that have had FiOS for awhile. Of course state commissions would not have given Verizon the permission for POTS replacement that has been given to some smaller telcos so FiOS (undoubtedly will replace POTS in some areas some day) is not really a typical overbuild. Telcos will either adopt more advanced technologies such as FTTH, VDSL2, or high speed fixed wireless broadband or maybe sooner than you think go out of business. Clearwire may have a chance to build a first class TD-LTE Advanced network but their record and cash may make that a long shot bet.

If they've said that "over and over again" why don't you cite where they've said that. Thanks.
