The article discusses on the efforts of business enterprises, government, and mobile communication carriers to deploy fixed wireless technologies as an alternative to the deployment of copper wires and fiber optics in the U.S. In April 2006, BellSouth Corp. has expanded its wireless broadband coverage in South Florida's residential and business communities and to areas where the Federal Emergency Management Agency had set up temporary housing for Hurricane Katrina victims. The U.S. Congress also stipulated in its 2005 appropriation bill that federally owned buildings that do not install redundant network with physically separate entry from primary network would not be provided with telecommunication funding.
