Wireless Good - Fixed Line BETTER

Posted: 17th Jun, 2004 By: MarkJ
Telecoms analyst Paul Budde has predicted that wireless broadband will see success, especially WiMAX, yet it still won't be able to fully rival land-line alternatives (ADSL etc.):

Budde predicts that a fully developed "wireless broadband communications medium" could provide benefits of cheaper access, faster implementation and flexible configuration, stressing that there are many technologies within the wireless realm.

However, he adds that the interconnected nature of the telecommunications industry prevents customers from adopting a new system that few others would be using at this stage. "There are already more wireless technologies that are obsolete than the ones that have survived," he said.

Budde maintains that wireless will never become an able competitor to the fixed line network, as he said it will never match the "reliability, quality and robustness" that a landline can offer.

While the comments are fair enough, the overall technological flexibility of wireless makes more distant predictions less certain. More @ ZDNet.
