WiMAX comes to a town near you soon. It is more expensive, but is a real improvement over WiFi. I can see 802.16a being used for broadband in the future, when it comes down in price.


Building an 802.16a network is up to half as expensive as installing a T1 line for operators, said WiMAX President Margaret LaBrecque, who is also a spokeswoman for Intel's broadband wireless initiatives group. By using 802.16a gear to build a wireless network, operators would be able to make broadband access available to customers sooner, because it would not entail major construction.
