Telmex launches WiMAX service

23 Mar 2007

Telmex Chile has launched its WiMAX network in 15 towns and cities across the country. The network, based on the 802.16e-2005 standard for fixed, nomadic and mobile usage in the 3.5GHz frequency band, uses Alcatel-Lucent’s 9100 WiMAX end-to-end solution. The company is initially targeting SMEs with the service, which will include fixed wireless telephony and broadband connectivity. Telmex hopes to expand the service to five more cities in coming weeks and by the end of 2007 expects to have covered 91% of Chile’s municipalities. The service starts at CLP19,900(USD37.12) per month.
