writes "I submitted a question on Monday September 12, 2005 @ 02:20PM to /. entitled "What is the Current Status of WiMAX?". 8 years later we are finally up and running on microwave hops from tower to tower directly back to Fiber. The RTT's between our location and the fiber pop are averaging 7ms. This tech is way cheaper than the combo of DSL and T1s we had (roughly 1/3) and is also 12x faster and scalable to gigabit levels once our biz requires it.
With the new possibility of the spectrum auction and the coming
5G tech, how soon before DSL, Cable, and fiber tech like Fios get added to The Big Internet Museum?"
