A group calling itself WiMaxCoop has been founded in Nashville, Tennessee: The group’s founder aims to encourage businesses and people to come together to finance their own WiMax networks. It’s his response to the lack of total broadband coverage in Nashville. He’s also encouraging other cities to follow a similar course.
