XO announces fixed-wireless plans, again

XO Holdings is at it again with a fixed-wireless strategy. The company said it will launch a new wireless broadband service, named Nextlink, in Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, San Diego and Tampa that will serve both mobile and wireline operators and business and government agencies. Nextlink said it plans to use licensed local multipoint distribution system wireless spectrum in the 28 GHz to 31 GHz range covering 75 markets in the U.S. during the next two years to offer wireless broadband as an alternative to conventional broadband delivered over copper or fiber. XO is one of those LMDS companies that failed to get a business plan off the ground in 1999. That was when the technology was too expensive and basically ahead of its time.
