They'd go broke trying to provide LTE to rural areas in the USA first. Once you move away from the east and west coast of the USA population densities drop dramatically. Add to that the shear size of the USA. It's not unlike the discussion regarding passenger rail; for the majority of areas in the USA it's just not cost-effective to deploy such a service. Especially if you're going to start in areas where you can't make a profit.
