Televersa signs up Proxim for WiMAX equipment

2 Jul 2008

Televersa Online has selected Proxim Wireless for the provision of WiMAX infrastructure. The company, which holds a 3.5GHz wireless broadband access licence, currently serves 2.5 million people throughout south east Bavaria, a mostly rural area covering 20,000 square kilometres. The company’s wireless ‘viaAIR’ internet service is designed to reach 95% of the region’s households and businesses, while wired DSL connections are available to only 60%. Following the deployment of a WiMAX network, Televersa Online will offer either wireless DSL or WiMAX depending upon the customer’s location.
