One thought on “What’s this WiMAX thing?”

  1. Wi-max (aka 802.16) is definitely being regarded as an end-user technology, rather than just a backhaul.

    Witness the new 802.16e standard, which adds cellular-like mobility and handover functions, and the different PHY modes in 802.16d that are suited to an obstacled urban environment.

    That said, the challenge of building out the network is real, but the complexity is probably less than that of a 3G network.
