Notes

Licenses are required for wide area implementations. Some service providers offer WiMAX commercially, but generally the technology is evolving toward self-contained purchased networks. Strength: Very good performance in terms of range and data rates, costs are determinate; no data volume costs, easily extensible by adding inexpensive client modems. Highly reliable, generally limited competition, and limited downstream cost risk. Limitations: Somewhat high initial system cost, requires external antenna. Lifetime 5-10 years
