BT Considers WiMAX Wireless Future

Posted: 21st Feb, 2004 By: MarkJ
BT has spoken about its previously reported trials of WiMAX (next generation broadband wireless technology) at the ISP Forum in London. The operator spoke about future expansion and other uses for the tech:

Robinson, who was speaking at the IIR ISP Forum in London, said that BT hopes to launch its radio-broadband service in more rural areas -- although this will need subsidies from local government agencies.

But in the long-term, BT is eyeing up the possibility of offering WiMax services to more than just rural broadband-have-nots.

Its broadband fixed access trials use a version of WiMax known as 802.16d, but a more advanced version is also under development called 802.16e. It supports mobility and should allow laptops and PDAs to connect to a WiMax antenna from a distance of several kilometres, like a mobile phone talking to the nearest base station.
