Pipex Wireless and Nokia Siemens Networks have agreed to co-operate on WiMax infrastructure and service development to expand the availability of commercial WiMax services in the UK.
Pipex Wireless is already conducting customer service trials in two areas of the UK, and such tests and roll-outs should gain momentum as a result of the Nokia Siemens deal.
“Pipex Wireless will use Nokia Siemens Networks equipment, services and networking expertise to widen its roll-out of WiMax powered broadband wireless services nationwide,” said Nokia.
Pipex will start using this added technology later this year. Pipex Wireless is the only provider in the UK near to launching full commercial WiMax services.
WiMax is seen as a cable-free wireless alternative to fixed line broadband when connecting users over long distances.
