"Last year about this time, we offered predictions for 2010, so we’ll look back today and see if our crystal ball was accurate. We had hoped to see VoIP delivered over a 4G network in 2010, followed next by unified communications applications," writes Network World's Larry Hettick.

"The 2010 reality: 4G is pretty much only being used for faster mobile Internet connections, relying on dual mode devices that use the 3G network for voice while the data channel takes advantage of 4G speeds. The good news is that by the end of 2010 in the U.S., Clearwire will have its WiMax network available to about 120 million people, while the Verizon Wireless LTE network will have been deployed to cover about a third of the population," Hettick writes.
