WiMAX Will Keep Limping Along

[qi:___wimax] Juniper Research issued a report this morning noting that growth in WiMAX networks has been slower than anticipated, but revenue from WiMAX 802.16e broadband subscribers will exceed $15 billion globally by 2014. Before we get all excited over the prospects for Clearwire (s CLWR), to put that in perspective, Verizon (s VZ) reported wireless revenue of $15.1 billion for the first quarter of this year. The report notes that WiMAX will likely be a replacement technology for low-end DSL service and in developing countries where wired access doesn’t make economic sense, but the overall market is still small.
