Natcom Starts WiMax Trials in Auckland
Natcom plans to begin trials of its WiMax Airthernet service in Auckland from January 2006 and is seeking trial customers to check the viability and quality of the service. The trial is open to small and medium sized business customers. Interested companies can register their interest on-line.

Airthernet is the brand name for Natcom's new wireless broadband services. Natcom says the service is for those who want Internet cost savings and a leap from their existing wired or wireless service

WiMax has been touted as the wireless broadband standard that enables high speed internet services to be used by customers. Many trials have been commenced globally and the Airthernet service from Natcom is aimed at business users who require a first class broadband service.

Any company that is selected to be a trial customer will obtain free installation of required WiMax equipment and be provided with the Internet bandwidth at a low nominal charge on a flat rate regardless of how much is used. It is hoped that an outcome of this trial is to demonstrate cost savings and increased efficiency by using this service for the businesses picked.

“Good quality broadband is important for business efficiency and cost savings,” said Frayne Cooke, CEO of Natcom, “now that WiMax appears viable, it makes sense to look at our own flavour of services that give customers a better level of service for always on Internet.”

The company expects to provide customers with speeds between 2Mbps to 10Mbps depending on which trial plan was selected.
