Concrete Cows and an update on WiMax

Last year saw the first mention/promise of city wide WiMax in Milton Keynes, UK.

The combination of ConnectMK and Freedom4 are offering WiMax to residents and small businesses with synchronous speeds of 8Mb/s.

The package is being targeted at home workers who need more upload capacity as they go about their work.

This is being touted as the first commercial application of WiMax in the UK. The main differentiator that is being highlighted is no need for a BT line required to support traditional ADSL services.

This is after successful trials in both Milton Keynes and Warwick. Next stop Manchester.
