A company called Detecon has released a study concluding that WiMax won’t be terribly interesting to large wireline operators: Detecon is owned by T-Systems, a Deutsche Telekom division. Despite the many large wireline operators that have recently announced broadband wireless trials, including AT&T, BellSouth, and Covad, Detecon doesn’t expect great interest from large wireline operators. Judging from the ongoing trials, I suspect that Detecon is a bit off base. The Yankee Group’s Lindsay Schroth is one analyst who believes that while many observers may hope that WiMax is a tool that will allow new entrants into the market, it’s ultimately more likely that WiMax will be most widely deployed by the incumbents.
