Unwired readies WiMax for 2007

Wireless broadband company Unwired will make WiMax available to Australian users by 2007 and claim it will rival Telstra's broadband services.

Unwired chief executive David Spence said laptops with embedded mobile WiMax chips will be available to Internet users in 2007.

His announcement follows agreement by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) on a new standard for the WiMax network, which now means that all technology and equipment created for it will be readable throughout the world.

"WiMax technology has been specifically developed to allow a lot of high-speed mobile data at a very low cost," Spence said.

"It is all very well to have expensive networks delivering high-speed data, but if the cost is too high then they don't work."

Unwired plans to use the WiMax while Telstra has chosen to offer its mobile broadband products on an updated version of its current 3G network.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
