DigitalBridge launches WiMAX

6 Jun 2007

DigitalBridge Communications (DBC) has launched WiMAX wireless broadband services in the town of Rexburg, Idaho. Initially covering 7,000 homes and businesses, the network will be extended over the coming months to cover southeast Idaho and Montana. Equipment is being supplied by Alvarion.

DBC’s BridgeMAXX service offers download speeds of up to 3Mbps, with up to 1Mbps on the uplink. The company says this beats what is currently available to customers in that area via DSL, cable or satellite connections. Kelley Dunne, CEO of DBC, commented: ‘Using WiMAX, we are able to offer high speed internet service where it wasn’t available before or as an alternative to DSL or cable. We can now give the educational and economic opportunities provided by true broadband connectivity to many people who have had limited options for high speed internet service.’
