WiMax is a new industry standard, which is MUCH faster (20MBps at peak) than WiFi. It’s not quite ready yet, but is closer to reality says Cnet, “An industry standards group has approved a new specification for WiMax that includes mobility support, paving the way for chipmakers and device manufacturers to start working on new products.”
Cnet writes WiMax is considered a promising next-generation wireless technology because it supports high data rates and has a long transmission reach. The technology supports peak data speeds of around 20 megabits per second with average user data rates between 1mbps and 4mbps, Sergeant said. Transmission distances range from 60 meters in densely populated areas to between 1.5 and 3.2 km in suburban areas.
