The WiMax Meme


A whole bunch of articles about WiMAX have started to appear in the media. The Seattle Times and The Newark Star-Ledger are two of the latest news outlets to jump on the WiMAX bandwagon. The Seattle Times is a good industry background piece, while The Star-Ledger report is more historical and includes other failed wireless data technologies and services.

I just want to confirm that WiMax (802.16 or even 802.20) is very hot.

Lots of activity with very experienced folks with creditentials in paging, cellular, fiber, and pcs.

Personally I’m not a big fan of the current 802.16 stuff, but that may be the price to pay for entry.

Kinda interesting that Nextel has been feeling Sprint out about a MMDS spectrum sharing deal.

Which cable company is going to make a bid for Sprint later this year? I’m partial to COX at the moment.
