1 Jul 2008

The city of Jackson Hole in Wyoming is the first in the US to have a fully certified 802.16e mobile WiMAX network in service. The 2.5GHz network has been installed by DigitalBridge Communications (DBC) using equipment from Alvarion. DBC already offers fixed WiMAX services in a number of markets in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming and says that it will upgrade these to mobile WiMAX over the next year. ‘We are delighted to turn Jackson Hole into the first US mobile WiMAX community, offering true mobile broadband internet service to both residential and business customers,’ said Kelley Dunne, CEO of DBC.
