By: MarkJ - 18 March, 2008 (10:51 AM)

The Isle of Wight based cable provider 'Wight Cable' (not to be confused with Wight Cable North/Smallworld) has announced a new deal with Airspan Networks for the delivery of a WiMAX (IEEE 802.16) based broadband wireless service.

The operator hopes to provide WiMAX voice (VoIP) and data services across the island to both residential and business customers, starting in the town of Newport:

As the only telecommunication and cable services provider on the island, we believe that the transition to WiMAX is the right strategy for Wightcable and its customers. We are pleased to be working with Airspan to quickly provide voice and data services using their technology to offer new products to our growing customer base, commented Ian Renshaw, Chief Executive of Wightcable.

Further details were not available at the time of writing, although more will surface once the network has been installed.
