Market-Ready Mobile WiMAX To Deliver UK Wireless Broadband

Nortel and Urban Wimax today launched a 'cross-market collaboration' to prove the technical deliverability of 4G mobile WiMAX in mature 3G markets such as Western Europe, ahead of the UK's spectrum auction in early 2008.

The collaboration, through which companies will be brought together to construct and trial a user-ready WiMAX service, will demonstrate that the technology and a proven delivery chain are in place to provide the UK with a robust '4G' service using WiMAX connectivity.
