Looks like India is gearing up for WiMax. I hope this is not just on paper. Anyone have more details ?
Reliance Infocomm, the code division multiple access mobile service company, the Tata group's Videsh Sanchar Nigam (VSNL) and the state-owned Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) have or are about to test launch wireless broadband technology commonly known as WiMax.
A Reliance Infocomm spokesman confirmed this: "We are looking at new technology options, including WiMax. It is at an experimental stage and trials are now being conducted in our lab."
A VSNL board member said, "WiMax technology is being tested by VSNL. This will give us access for last mile wireless connectivity."
A BSNL executive in Mumbai said; "We expect to set up a pilot project in Pune within the next six months."
