WiMAX on the streets of London

WiMAX is typically depicted as a suitable solution for rural, sparsely populated, under-served areas. Tell that to U.K. communications infrastructure provider Urban WiMAX, which provides connections for video, data and voice using WiMAX. They are looking for resellers to ramp up business in London and thus increase the number of users on its channel. Sasha Williamson, CEO of Urban WiMax, told CRN, "We want to recruit 12 partners by 2007."
