I agree, even though I've never used Wi-max, I am impressed by the LTE on my iPhone 5. I don't even notice a difference when I have it latched on to my home Wi-Fi (powered by Comcast) or using Verizon LTE on the go. I don't use public hotspots because of security vulnerabilities.
Wi-max (based on what I've read on DSLR) is a downgrade from LTE.
Of course not. I remember when clear wire first came out I bought an ispot. $25 a month for unlimited internet... and our house is less then a mile away from a clear tower. What more could you ask for?
.... only our house has trees everywhere from the tower and gets no signal AT ALL from the clear wire tower, I had to drive around just to find a signal that was around 2.5/0.5.
Verizon lte gets 30/12 in really populated areas. I pay for limited internet, but fast internet that you don't need to drive around for.
