Mobile WiMax Launched in Amsterdam

An upstart WiMax company, Worldmax, is threatening to displace established telelcom companies by building Europe’s first mobile WiMax network. With impressive speeds and incredible distances, WiMax is looking very competitive with both broadband and cell phone access (since it can be used while moving). WorldMax charges just €20 a month for its unlimited plan – without a long-term contract. I’m looking forward to such a service coming to the US, and hoping that regulation or municipal adoption of obsolescent technology doesn’t impede it.
