A company called WiMax Telecom AG said it has plans to build WiMax networks covering Switzerland and Austria: The company acquired a nationwide license (I would guess in the 3.5 MHz band but I’m not sure) for Austria last October. The company doesn’t appear to have licenses in Switzerland yet.
Unstrung points out that despite such solid plans for future deployments, apparently WiMax Telecom is still considering its options. It will start with two trials in Austria, using broadband wireless equipment that is available now. The company will also try a UMTS-TDD solution, which implies IPWireless or a company that has licensed IPWireless’ technology. While most new companies might decide to build a Web site before issuing a provocative press release, a new Web site is apparently on WiMax Telecom’s “to-do list.”
