iBurst weighs WiMAX options

24 Oct 2006

The South African wireless ISP iBurst says it is still considering its options for using its WiMAX spectrum. The firm currently uses proprietary technology to provide wireless broadband services but is also trialling a WiMAX network. Local news website MyADSL reports that iBurst is particularly interested in using WiMAX for backhaul connectivity rather than end-user links. iBurst is one of four 3.5GHz licensees in South Africa along with Telekom, Neotel and Sentech.
