SPOTLIGHT: Vodafone: Act fast on LTE, WiMAX already out

"I'm going to give you another example when it's taken us quite a long time to come forward. GSM network standards: LTE and WiMAX. The GSMA needs to influence the mobile ecosystem to ensure we don't repeat the situation again, where LTE, this is longterm evolution of HSDPA and HSPA, is still in the standards definition phase, while WiMAX is commercially available. Many have used the IEEE to push forward an accelerated rollout of WiMAX, and our industry risks being marginalized if you don't react to the future needs of operators."
