The article presents information on the market for WiMAX. The International Telecomunications Union Radiocommunication has authorized WiMAX for use in 2.5 gigahertz (GHz)-2.69 GHz bands in third generation (3G) spectrum. According to the author this place WiMAX among the technologies of wideband-code division multiple access (W-CDMA) and cdma2000, and it operates in the frequency of cellular technologies. Countries to use the 3G spectrum are Great Britain, Sweden, Australia, Switzerland and Italy.
