Pipex Wireless Launch New WiMAX Trials

Posted: 18th Jan, 2007 By: MarkJ
Pipex's Wireless division has announced a second phase of commercial trials using broadband WiMAX technology. The ISP is expected to utilise three sites in the Leamington Spa and Warwick area:

As the UK’s first wireless solutions provider to launch WiMAX services - with Milton Keynes currently being implemented - Pipex Wireless intends to initially deliver trial services to Warwick District Council and subsequently approach businesses and home-users in the Warwick area. The trial network will be commissioned in Q2/07 and the trial will run for six months. Other towns and cities are planned for deployment later in 2007.

High-speed broadband will be delivered over Airspan’s HiperMAX WiMAX base stations, one of which will be located at the National Grid Wireless’ headquarters in southern Warwick. Intel Solutions Services is working with the council providing support for the introduction of wireless and other technologies, and evaluating performance.

Mike Read, CEO, Pipex Wireless, adds, "Following the initial success of our Milton Keynes trial, we are delighted to expand our WiMAX services into new towns and cities in the UK. Working with National Grid Wireless and Warwick District Council further develops our wireless capability and we are looking forward to more organisations, businesses and consumers using WiMAX."

The news comes only days after Pipex issued its latest trading update, which revealed that broadband customer numbers had remained virtually unchanged since September 2006.
