Excellent post. Thanks for sharing!

Can I add something about WiMax?

WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology that provides wireless data over long distances in a variety of ways, from point-to-point links to full mobile cellular type access. It is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard, which is also called WirelessMAN. The name "WiMAX" was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformance and interoperability of the standard.

The forum describes WiMAX as "a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL" (and also to High Speed Packet Access).

Currently, Pakistan has the largest fully functional nationwide Wimax network in the world. Wateen Telecom installed the network in seventeen cities throughout Pakistan using Motorola hardware.
