MegaBroadband launched a portable broadband wireless service in Massachusetts: The network was built using equipment from Navini and it operates in the 2.3 GHz frequency, also known as the wireless communications service (WCS) band. The network will initially support 3,000 users. Navini says it has an upgrade path to the mobile WiMax standard, though the standard hasn’t yet been solidified.
This press release includes a reference to a key date. The FCC requires WCS spectrum owners to deploy networks using the spectrum by mid-2007. As that date looms, I’d expect to see an increasing number of deployments or sales of the spectrum. However, traditionally companies have found ways to either push back such deadlines or deploy the minimum amount of network that is required.
