Futura WiMAX

18 Jul 2006

The US wireless broadband provider Futura Technologies says it has reached the final stages in its deployment of a WiMAX network in the city of Miami, Oklahoma. The service, dubbed FuturaWave, will cost USD29.99 for a 1.5Mbps internet connection plus a voice-over-IP package offering unlimited calls within the US and Canada. The firm says maximum transmission speeds will soon be raised to 6Mbps, with the network covering the entire city of Miami, as well as some surrounding areas. Futura’s president and CEO, Josh Garrett, comments: ‘FuturaWave wireless broadband will completely revolutionize the way that people stay connected to the internet. With speeds equal to or greater than cable or DSL, combined with a service that is portable, many consumers and business will benefit greatly from FuturaWave.’
