Sprint already has 4G (WiMAX) and Verizon is set to launch their LTE network later this year. When you include T-Mo's HSPA+ network as "4G", AT&T will be the last of the major US carriers to support the next wave in mobile Internet. They plan to spend some $700 million on their LTE network in 2010 alone, and to go "far beyond" that amount in 2011.
