Global - WiMAX - Fixed Wireless Analyses


Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. There are still niche opportunities for wireless broadband within the fixed market, particularly in the developing markets such as China and India, WiMAX will certainly be able to tap into the fixed broadband market, simply because there is no fixed network available at all. The regional markets that don’t attract the attention of the fixed network providers, and that are unlikely to see such competition in the next five years or so, also offer an opportunity for WiMAX. This report includes analysis of the Fixed Wireless market, with an emphasis on WiMAX. For analysis of WiMAX in terms of the mobile industry, see separate report.

Paul, May I congratulate you on a very successful and enjoyable afternoon with the Minister. In providing the roundtable discussions between government and industry, it highlighted the strong interest by stakeholders in Broadband and its implementation but it also presented us with other issues and opportunities that we need to address.
