SPOTLIGHT: Intel Capital invests in U.K. ISP to push WiMAX

Intel is now investing in service providers to push the adoption of WiMAX. Intel Capital, the venture capital division of Intel, has formed a joint venture with ISP Pipex Communications in London to create Pipex Wireless, a company that plans to offer WiMAX to enterprises and governments, including citywide wireless access networks. Intel Capital is investing $25 million in the company while Pipex has transferred its U.K. rights to spectrum at 3.6-GHz to the joint venture. We could see many more JVs like this. I wonder if it wasn't for Intel pushing WiMAX integration in laptops and investing in vendors and operators, would we see a WiMAX market at all? Article
