The article discusses the proliferation of Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) networks around the world. According to TeleGeography Research, there are more than 200 operators globally that have announced plans to deploy WiMAX or have launched trials or commercial networks. The research firm says that about half of those operators have WiMAX in trial or have launched commercial network based on pre-WiMAX equipment. Information on Sprint's WiMAX plans is presented.
