The AirCard family of mobile broadband devices has been acquired by NETGEAR, Inc. As of April 3, 2013, all AirCard products are marketed, sold and supported by NETGEAR.
Firmware and support documentation for AirCard devices will still be available from sierrawireless.com for a transition period.

I read that article closely, and it does not refer anywhere to the WiMax network. Unlike the Tri-Fi, I get the impression that neither of these new doohinkeys include WiMax capability. I'm assuming that is correct?
In any event, theoretically, LTE is supposed to be better than WiMax, though I have yet to see evidence of that in my neck of the woods, which is midtown Manhattan, zip 10022. In general, the LTE downloads here are actually slower than WiMax, around 2 megs versus around 5 megs, though the upload is a bit better, usually around 4 to 5 megs compared to WiMax's capped 1.5 megs.
In any event, it would take a dramatic improvement in the LTE in these parts, performance that at least conforms to Sprint's minimum download spec of 6 megs, before I would ever consider giving up WiMax.
However, to be optimistic for a moment, assuming that LTE around here eventually performs in spec, I'm wondering whether Wireless 'n' WiFi customers like me will eventually see the Zing hotspot included by WnW as an approved device for their service. Anyone know?
Speaking of which, there are quite a few people who have referred to WnW on this web site recently. Who do I contact about the possibility of dslreports.com setting up a WnW forum here similar to the Millenicom forum?
2.5GHz spectrum , which excels at broad-based, high-speed coverage, is expected to provide Sprint customers increased speeds and capacity in densely populated cities.
That is the wimax network , which will be converted to LTE over time !
