Nasion.Com is planning to launch a WiMax trial in Malaysia with Intel’s support in the second quarter: I would very much like to know what exactly Intel is contributing to its 120 WiMax trials around the world and how much the company figures it will spend on these trials.
While WiMax has been lauded as a low-cost way to roll out broadband services, in places like Malaysia apparently the cost isn’t low enough. The hardware costs are still quite high, according to Nasion.Com. Plus, the cost of the fixed-line backhaul used for each base station can also make the system cost-prohibitive. In many countries that landline can only be leased from the incumbent phone company which may charge exorbitant fees.
