Bermuda to benefit from WiMAX deployment

5 Jun 2006

Bermudan telecoms company North Rock Communications plans to launch a high speed wireless network based on WiMAX technology this summer. The new service, tentatively named North Rock Max, will be rolled out in a phased approach and will complement the company’s existing wireless networks on the island. North Rock Max will offer both internet access and voice telephony with unlimited local calling and will begin to replace Wi-Fi over the next few years. North Rock Communications launched its original fixed wireless service to the corporate community in January 2000, with residential services following in June 2002. In September 2004 the company became the only alternative to incumbent telco BTC when it began offering customers a local phone line.
