21 Jun 2007

After several months of competitive trials, Austar United Communications Limited (AUN) has announced it has selected Nortel Networks as its preferred vendor for its proposed WiMAX broadband network in regional Australia.

Austar said the WiMAX network would provide regional Australians with a real alternative for local broadband access services at comparatively low costs. ‘Through our licensed spectrum and the 802.16e technology, Austar is now in a position to deliver not only a fixed wireless broadband, but importantly a world-class, inter-operable and mobile WiMAX,’ said a company spokesperson.
