Unwired, the operator offering broadband wireless using Navini’s equipment in Sydney, scored 14,000 customers in under five months: The company claims that accounts for 17 percent of new broadband users in Sydney. Unwired plans to upgrade its network to comply with 802.16e, the mobile WiMax standard, when it becomes available.
These are quite successful numbers for a wireless network in a major city. I don’t know the extent of broadband availability in Sydney, but I would imagine that it’s pretty good.
Irish Broadband uses Navini to offer service to some customers in Dublin. But it doesn’t appear that Irish Broadband’s strategy is seamless coverage throughout the city. The offering is available in pockets. Unlike Unwired’s service in Sydney, I don’t believe that the service is offered as a portable service in Dublin.
