Folks, just an introduction to Woosh. They will be keeping an eye around the forum, answering what they can, and making sure people have the right information about their services.

Please remember, as usual, this is not their help desk service! If you have problems and you need immediate help always contact their help desk directly.

That is exactly right. We will be answering general questions about our technology and products.

The person posting the reply may differ depending on the nature of the question, but we think it is important for you to know that the answer has come from a company 'insider'.

Thanks Mauricio for setting up our account.

I understand Woosh has plans for wi-max, when this happens are you looking at a system like Unwired in Australia where line of sight to the transmitter is not required?

Thanks again for the welcome. 

To answer DJShadow's question-

The technology used by Unwired in Australia and the technology currently used by Woosh are non line of sight technologies.  As you move into marginal conditions they become more or less line of sight.  People who live in rural areas will probably note the same effect with their mobile phones.

Both Unwired and Woosh are looking at the next breed of technology which will also be non line of sight.  WiMAX is high on our list as it has widespread commercially deployment.  There are lots of devices coming out with embedded WiMAX chips, so our Customers will be able to have the latest devices.  You can see a good selection here  I'll be having one of these, or whatever the latest version is when we launch.
