WiMax ready for rollout in India

Not open for further replies.


MUMBAI: After much talk, tests and trials, WiMax seems to be finally ready for commercial use in India. WiMax, high-speed internet access over a wireless connection, is a low-cost way to provide internet connectivity in places where laying cables is difficult

Chennai-based Aircel is planning to take its WiMax network national while the Tata-owned VSNL will roll out retail WiMax offerings later this year. Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL) is also ready to start WiMax services, having undertaken pilots at 14 locations.

VSNL as well as BSNL have partnered with Aperto Networks, developer of the world's most advanced WiMax base stations and subscriber units, to deploy multi-service broadband wireless systems.

The trials demonstrated applications in moving conditions such as video streaming, high-speed file downloads, voice over IP and web browsing.

Bangalore is IT city & Silicon valley, only for the name's sake. Availability sucks here. Just try searching for a force feedback joystick or a good graphics card in Bangalore & you know what I mean.
