3 Sep 2008

The Russian wireless operator Scartel has launched trials of mobile WiMAX technology in Moscow and St Petersburg in conjunction with South Korean equipment vendor Samsung. The two companies plan to deploy up to 1,600 access points by early 2009, by which time the two city networks are expected to be ready to go live. The networks are using frequencies in the 2.5GHz-2.7GHz band and should cover an area which is home to around 20 million people.
