SPOTLIGHT: Intel ships WiMax to Gulf Coast

Intel is spearheading an effort to bring WiMax to areas of the Gulf Coast where existing infrastructure has been destroyed or never existed. Intel is providing WiMax equipment that is expected to carry signals about 15 miles to a Point of Presence on the Internet. The bandwidth both upstream and downstream is expected to be about 45 Mbps, which is 30 times the speed of a standard 1.5 Mbps DSL connection. Article
