Global - WiMAX - Mobility Analyses


Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. When WiMAX started to lose its potential as an alternative to fixed broadband, the industry began talking about personal broadband, basically as a much more data-focussed wireless broadband product for the mobile market. In 2008 certified mobile WiMAX products became available, however while we wait for these products to reach the mass market, the mobile operators themselves continue to increase wireless broadband penetration – placing them in a strong position to fend off any potential WiMAX competition. This report includes BuddeComm’s analysis of WiMAX in terms of the mobile industry. Statistics for WiMAX can be found in a separate report.
