WiMAX to be preferred for internet connection

Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, or the technology better known as WiMAX is expected to be widely adopted anytime soon and will be replacing the conventional modes of internet connectivity (the likes of wired broadband, WiFi and even HSPDA).

Why is WiMAX preferred?
  1. WiMAX is essentially a wireless digital communications system, that naturally explains its advantage over wired broadband internet connection.
  2. WiMax (IEEE 802.16) is superior to its predecessor, WiFi which uses the 802.11 specifications (WiMAX has wider range, higher speed and less interference effects).
  3. WiMAX is also more cost effective to deploy than cables to each house especially in rural areas.
  4. During emergency and for security purposes, WiMAX's advantages are undisputed (being far-reaching, it can also be easily set up through fixed or mobile transmitters).
How WiMAX works?
To the end users, there is not much difference in using WiFi and WiMAX. They only have to get WiMAX enabled devices and as long as there are WiMAX services and facilities around, they should be able to experience good internet connection. For further information on how WiMax works, check the following articles:
Future Development
World leaders and technology analysts are convinced that WiMAX has plenty to offer and will be adopting it in stages as the wireless networking standard. In mid-2006, Sprint Nextel announced that it would be investing about US$5 billion in WiMAX technology over the next few years. Meanwhile computer developers, led by computer chip giant Intel are preparing to release computers integrated with WiMAX receivers. Other multimedia applications are expected to be enhanced by WiMax.

I don't think WiFi is going to go anywhere quickly. I think WiFi is going to stay for at least the next 3-6 years, because it is so ingrained into our tech systems.

Intel WiMAX rocks. :D

Hmm, I think both WiFi and WiMAX have their limitations. I am looking forward to using 3G HSDPA instead, greater mobility and coverage.

Laptop with HSDPA is ready too, if I am not mistaken.
