The article cites a report from Forward Concepts which forecasts a compound annual growth rate of 130% for the WiMAX and pre-WiMAX equipment market. In contrast to an earlier view that saw mobile WiMAX as a threat to third generation cellular equipment, vendors such as Nokia now feel that WiMAX will be a complementary technology. The study cites preliminary analyses indicating that 802.16e data delivery costs can be cheaper per megabyte than HSDPA or 1xEV-DO, when provided as an overlay to a cellular network.
