Covad planning WiMAX launch

20 May 2008

The US cable operator Covad says it has completed field trials of fixed WiMAX equipment and it is now planning to deploy a commercial wireless broadband network later this year. Working with WiMAX vendor Axxcelera, Covad has carried out trials of 802.16-2004 technology in Los Angeles, Orange County and the San Francisco Bay area. The firm is now expecting to introduce a 6Mbps WiMAX product for its business users, with coverage initially limited to California.
