WiMAX comming to Sderot

21 Sep 2007

Reports from Israel state that Internet Gold, Alvarion and Intel are working together to establish the country’s first community-wide WIMAX network in an area within the city of Sderot and Western Negev. The service is being provided by Internet Gold subsidiary 012 Smile.Communication. The move follows the award by the Ministry of Communications of an extension to the company’s limited licence for WiMAX field trials in restricted areas, which is due to end in March 2008.
