Was pretty surprised to see that Pakistan’s WiMax deployment plans made it to CNET and Slashdot. The rollout will be ahead of the US and possibly ahead of the rest of the world since we’re using the recently finalized, 802.16e standard. I guess it can’t be that impressive. After all, we are a “failed state“:).
Though Motowi4, mentioned in the article, is building the network for Wateen Telecom, Dancom Online Services, my employer, is aiming to be the first to actually deploy it and offer it as part of its broadband service. I’m starting to like my job more and more (yes, there is something else. Expect to read about it in a couple of weeks).
