Regional - Broadband - WiMAX - Africa, Middle East - 2007

Synopsis

Archived report. This report was archived in 2008 and has not been updated since. With standardised WiMAX finally arriving there will be several opportunities for this new technology. It still can position itself as an alternative broadband customer access technology. The longer it takes for incumbents to roll out true broadband networks (10Mb/s-plus) the more chance wireless broadband (WiMAX and meshed WiFi) has of securing a position in this market. In the end it will depend on whether the technology case and the business case for WiMAX will stand up against alternative offerings from fixed and other mobile systems. The future of WiMAX however might be more in the area of Mobility and WPANs. This report covers the developments in WiMAX developments in Africa and the Middle East in current and recent years.
