Compass is rolling out Wimax as per the full article here:


http://www.stuff.co.nz/technology/gadgets/2883679/WiMax-rollout-bypasses-Wellington


For anyone who is in the Franklin area Wimax should be completed here within 1-2 months. No equipment change is envisaged at the consumers end.


Cheers,


Matt.

John, Don't you have 200 MB/s via your super duper Vodafone mobile?

They have reduced the prices over the last couple of years. I am now on 10 GB for $51 per month + 2talk $15 makes for a cheap home line...

I wonder if they are going to up the price for the faster speed? 1 MB/sec is pretty slow these days and there must be a bit of pressure coming on from the likes of Telecom as they are cabnetising flat out. Even the rellies in the wopwops of Ramarama went from dial up only to 6 MB/s on Telecom a week ago.

Cheers,

Matt.

The previous kit they used was 802.16-2004 rev compliant on the PHY layer. The Alverion kit is actually slightly less spectrally efficient and given the fact that vast swathes of new spectrum have not been acquired then I wouldnt expect huge speed upgrades
