Informa    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
If you are looking for a regional WiMAX champion, you don't need to look much farther than KDDI-backed Japanese operator UQ Communications, which launched in July 2009 and within two years had more than 1 million subscriptions, and which expects to have 2 million by end of March.

A beginning guide on how to define 4G
RCR Unplugged    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
4G has become a bit of a corrupt term overall. The fight between those in the industry that have created technology standards for what it actually needs to be in terms of speed, etc. to be defined as such and those on marketing teams for the big four carriers (AT&T, Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile) exposes a huge gap. First of all, "G" stands for generation. So, all the marketing teams love to claim they are the next-generation network or have the next wave of device that is 4G. Here's a hint: if you have an iPhone, it doesn't mean you have 4G service. More
