At this point, they are likely to offer tactical use of WiMax
services to those that need high bandwidth roaming.
Rival LG Electronics, however, has teamed up with Intel to form an alliance to work on combining the Intel-backed WiMAX

The MOEA rolled out "action plan for the development of WiMAX
industry" last year, which aims to achieve two major goals during a four-year period (2010-2013): developing Taiwan into an exemplary island for wireless broadband service worldwide and an exporter of WiMAX
is a wireless digital communications system, also known as IEEE 802.16, which is intended for broad wireless networks.
"We don't think it would be detrimental if Clearwire decided to run both WiMAX
and LTE," he says.
is poised to deliver high speed wireless broadband at lower costs that will aide mass adoption and thus alleviate problems faced by India's broadband market.
"This initiative between Motorola and Eden Rock can save small WiMAX
operators Opex and Capex costs by defining a complete reference network that may be replicated into a fully-integrated, turnkey E2E WiMAX
system," said Fred Gabbard, vice president of product management, Motorola Networks.
"We've enjoyed considerable success with 2.3 GHz WiMAX
," said Michael Lai, chief executive officer of Packet One Networks, a subsidiary of Green Packet and a member of the WiMAX
