Analyst: Paul Budde


The fact that progress in wireless broadband is occurring at such a painfully slow pace is creating anxiety in the market, and there is an ongoing information war being waged around wireless broadband developments. Fixed wireless broadband seems to have found its niche in some of the regional markets, often assisted with government funding. In the meantime Mobile broadband has taken off in a big way, especially now that 3G-based data services are improving so quickly. If any serious developments are going to take place in the mass market for WiMAX we will still have to wait a few more years. It is more likely that WiMAX both in the fixed wireless market and in the mobility market will only be a niche market product. This report analyses the pros and cons and what opportunities and possibilities exist in this market.
