Mobile WiMAX on the up?

Comment

WiMAXFor awhile, we pictured WiMAX as a kind of fixed broadband solution. You know, the kind of thing you set up when you live in the boonies and there’s no way in hell you’re going to get a solid line from civilization to your house. However, a recent report is saying that thanks to partnerships between companies such as Clearwire and Sprint, mobile WiMAX is becoming more and more popular in the US. The most immediate implications for mobile WiMAX would be for TV and entertainment, but will the technology ever wriggle its way into the voice and data applications that BlackBerry users hold so very dear? We’d really like to read more of this report to find out, but there’s a pretty hefty pricetag on it.
