Clearwire has released that in their LTE test bed in Phoenix has seen peak download speeds of 90Mbps The speed is a significant difference between their advertised WiMAX speeds, and their LTE. One fact that needs to be noted about this test is that the test was performed on a test network. This network would not be subject to real world stresses and abuses by users that could cause a reduction in the performance speed. The testing speeds and real world speeds tend to be very different. That being said is the test was performed in a 20x20 Mhz configuration. Verizon Wireless is expecting 5-12Mbps speeds on their real world network, and Clearwire's own WiMAX option runs at 3-6Mbps. Clearwire's recent concentrated efforts with LTE should not be viewed as a play to abandon the WiMAX technology. Clearwire has announced that their WiMAX will cover 120 POPs this year.
