Most wireless carriers are going for LTE for their 4G network of choice. So far, WiMax is in only a few select markets and there have been no smartphones to operate on the network.

 

There are a number of computer modems though. Engadget reports that by the end of the year there will be coverage for about 120 million users around the country for WiMax networks and users of the EVO. Most of us will still not have access to 4G until next year, if then.
