Because WiMax is alive and well.

 

Define soon.

 

That only makes sense as they're very similar.

 

They are very similar as LTE is based off of WiMax.

 

It isn't.

How many potential WiMax subscribers are there now that Clearwire is killing WiMax?

 

Oh and:

 

"Almost one year ago, the GSMA called on Taiwan's government to abandon its plans to help local vendors become leaders in the WiMAX equipment market and instead lend support to LTE equipment vendors."

Wimax is a shorter life than CDMA.

 

Here's some more evidence that WiMax is alive and well:

Why? What advantage does WiMax have over TDD-LTE and FDD-LTE. What am I missing?

Look what Yota did:

 

"In late 2009 and early 2010, Yota visited every single vendor of WiMax silicon and asked whether they planned to use the faster WiMax 2 standard, Khachaturov said. Each said it would do so only if Yota committed to a large order. So Yota jumped on the LTE bandwagon.

The advantage would be a much larger ecosystem of suppliers for both network equipment and smartphones and other customer devices."

WiMax is dead. It's just running on fumes.

Lower cost structure. Lower latency. Band support. I can implement an entire fixed WiMax network  that brings me in a handsome revenue for less than a single LTE core. Well, not that I would. While much cheaper than LTE, WiMax is still far too expensive.

 

Apparently as a network operator that knows on a first name basis literally dozens of companies with WiMax networks, I should cast that aside and listen to a guy with 68 posts with an iPhone in Detroit that knows how to use Google.

What company do you run?

What company do you run?

 

Intelligent Computing Solutions, a DeKalb, IL based fixed wireless and soon fiber optic provider of Internet and data services. We've had steady growth over eight years and have obtained at least partial pieces of two other operators in my area in that time. Time is running out this year, but I should be deploying my own fiber optic network next year.

Expand into PA! I don't have any cable or DSL here, and the local WISP doesn't reach here.

Work with that WISP. We're usually easy to work with. Find out how many customers they'd need in your area to justify the expansion, then find them.

I have, actually!  We'll see what happens.

 

The state of PA and all ILECs have a commitment to provide DSL to all customers by 12/31/2015.  We are supposed to get DSL by October 2014.  We'll see if it happens!

Now that We got slapped and this was spun off into its own thread... are you truly wanting to learn or are you just being a troll?

Do you use MVDDS?

What do you think about it? Cablevision recently shut down their OMGFAST and I'm curious if it was because of a technical reason.

I'll have to check on that. I use equipment by Ubiquiti Networks, Mikrotik and Cambium (used to be Motorola). I use 5 GHz and 3650 MHz.

A tower costs me about $7k to build out. I need about $1,000/month in revenue to break even on a site.

So doesn't this sound like the answer to rural broadband? Edited by qpotlk1134

assuming he was referring to 3.6/5ghz, probably not for *mobile* rural broadband, but could very well be a possibility for *FIXED* rural broadband.

MVDDS.

MVDDS has a range of 5 miles, so it won't be of much help for real rural areas. 5 GHz and maybe the new 3550 band are the best hope for fixed rural broadband. 3550 would be adding another 100 MHz to 3650. There's several hundred MHz in 5 GHz, but too many of them have low power limits restricting them to maybe 6 or 7 miles for PtMP. Hoping to get some more space in 5 GHz brought in and at a higher power. I think the unlicensed 10 GHz proposal may have had enough power to go more than 5 miles, but I am far from certain on that.

How much bandwidth to you have at each site?

I have 200 megs across about a dozen sites, but it isn't all being used. I will be adding a few hundred megs more as I bring on a couple large customers.

Are you for commercial or residential access?

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
