AIRworks Pre-WiMAX Devon Service

Posted: 06th May, 2005 By: MarkJ
Update: Some further info. added. Internet AIRworks has introduced a pre-WiMAX (whatever that means) broadband wireless service in the Woodbury area of Devon, which is responsible for linking up over 25 local businessmen and residents:

Internet AIRworks is set to bring new hope to rural communities in the South West and help propel e-Government plans to have every single community connected by the end of 2005. Customers can select from a range of services from standard ADSL (Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line) broadband to high-speed SDSL (Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line) with 4Mb bandwidth capacity.

Saul Foster, Founder of Internet AIRworks comments: "Although BT aims to get 99.6 percent coverage by the end of this year, rural communities such as Woodbury are not a priority and are subsequently losing out. With our entrance into the market, smaller businesses in remote areas will be able to get faster Internet connections at a fifth of the price."

Internet AIRworks is offering wireless broadband access based upon the 802.11a standard. It’s ExtremeAIR SDSL Broadband service covers up to 7 km, and supports 4Mbs of bandwidth. It reaches further than standard fixed line services and is a fifth of the cost of BT’s SDSL broadband equivalent. Also, combined with the Government’s Remote Area BroadBand Inclusion Trial (RABBIT), SME businesses can get financial support in order to afford faster broadband access.

Pricing

Residential package:

Radio device - £195 (External mounting is an additional cost of £55)

Subscription rates - Starting from £22.95 per month for 256k to £69.95 per month for 4Mb

Business package:

We're slightly confused by the definition of any 802.11 broadband wireless technology as pre-WiMAX, since .11 is Wi-Fi and .16 is WiMAX.

The ISP explains: I just thought I'd mention that Internet AIRworks is using a 5.8Ghz hybrid proprietary system which bridges the gap between Wi-Fi and WiMax. We aren't legally allowed to call it WiMax yet, seeing as the standard isn't ratified yet.

We are launching the service on May 17th in London.
