WiMAX trial success

6 Apr 2006

The German utility firm NEW Energie and equipment vendor Nortel have successfully completed a trial of WiMAX broadband wireless technology. The trial, carried out in the town of Erkelenz, offered broadband internet services with speeds of up to 10Mbps. NEW Energie says it now hopes to go on to launch a full commercial WiMAX service within the next few months, targeting areas which are currently underserved by fixed broadband networks.
