WiMAX networks will fly with 700Mhz spectrum: EW reader

However, come 2009/2010, if the partnership between Google and Sprint pans out and they win a nationwide slice of the 700Mhz spectrum they will upgrade their 2.5Ghz WiMAX network to 700Mhz and begin to dominate the broadband wireless business. This to include many DSL, cable modem and most cell carriers data networks.

Watch this auction, it will be spectacular as the big deep pocket firms beat each other up and the US Congress will smile.

FTTH will be the only viable wired network standing come 2015, with Gig to each premises and 100Gbit/s backbones.
