1 Sep 2005

The French equipment supplier Alcatel has been chosen by WiMAX Telecom of Austria to deploy a broadband wireless network. The first phase of the rollout is scheduled to be completed by the end of this month in the southern regions of Styria of Burgenland, with customers being offered broadband internet access at speeds of 2Mbps. Swiss-owned WiMAX Telecom was the only firm to win WiMAX frequencies in the Austrian government’s spectrum auction in October 2004.
