Qwest plans WiMax test

Qwest Communications is searching for a small to midsized city near Denver to test a WiMax system. The company is already testing WiMax among employees in Denver and Rio Rancho, New Mexico. An expanded trial would include residential and business users. Qwest's new Colorado test is scheduled to start in the fourth quarter. The trial period is expected to last three to six months. The company will reportedly choose to test the technology in a location lacking considerable DSL deployment.
