WiMAX 2 Standard Slated To Be Finalized In November

With Verizon and AT&T looking to focus on LTE, WiMAX has a serious challenge on its hand, so it’s probably good news that the successor to WiMAX, namely WiMAX 2, will have its standard finalized in November this year, with hardware expected to be certified in 2011, and rolled out in 2012. The benefits of WiMAX 2 will include theoretical speeds of up to 1Gbps for downloads, which does sound interesting on paper. Will WiMAX 2 arrive in time to compete with LTE? Only time will tell.
