Slower then DSL? I guess you do not read well
Sprint stated the speed will be about 3 to 4 Mbps, which is almost as fast as my cable modem. According with our fav, Wikipedia,

802.16e WiMAX Mobile Internet MIMO-SOFDMA

Downlink Uplink
70 70 Quoted speeds only achievable at very short ranges, more practically 10 Mbps at 10 km.

Reading is fundamental! Try it sometime!
