WiMax to LTE transition for a service provider

As per my understanding WiMax do interconnect with LTE as other 3GPP technologies, as other technologies i.e. 3GPP or 3GPP2 has migration plan from their respective technologies to LTE in phases do WiMax service provider also has similar plan or do they have any technology hurdle.

From the access network point of view both uses OFDMA/SC-FDMA though core part is different in both the cases. Despite being the first adopter of OFDMA what could be the possible reason of the WiMax failure. And what are the factors which favored the LTE.

what is the coverage area or you can say transmission range of WiFi (802.11p), eNB and a WiMAX node? Is there any difference in the area of three nodes?

I was going through the OFDMA wiki page ( it seems that it is registered trademark of and giving the impression of OFDMA is new technology. But while Googling further I found that it was invented in 1957 [ Kineplex, multi-carrier HF modem (R.R. Mosier & R.G. Clabaugh)]

Now the question is why telecom industry took so much of time to adopt OFDMA as access technology in the form of LTE/WiMax. Was there some reason or it was ignorance of telecom industry?
