WiMAX winners announced by MCMC

The 2.3GHz band has traditionally been used for fixed service and service for point to multipoints. Making this band available to industry or service providers will allow them to provide broadband services to consumers, with much the same capability as the 2.4GHz, 2.5GH and 3.4 GHz.

The roll out of 2.3GHz band is to complement the implementation of MyICMS 886 Strategy whereby it is targeted that broadband penetration reaches 75% of households by 2010. The MCMC hopes that the provision of lines by way of wireless technology, which is faster and more affordable, would assist in meeting the targets of the MyICMS 886 Strategy.
