said by sprintusrrrrrr :WiMAX isn't a cheap technology and it will only succeed if people are willing to pay for it. IMHO WiMAX will compete with cellular internet but it remains doubtful that it will compete with the low cost of WiFi for less than broad coverage. You are right about some cities being suckered, especially if the WiFi units aren't upgradeable.
Really sad to see cities get suckered into a technology never intended for broad coverage when WiMAX is just a year or two away.
