ABSTRACT
The article reports that Vyyo has announced that it will break up its wireless operation to increase its bandwidth for cable networks in the U.S. Its other operation will be focusing on 700 Mega Hertz pre-WiMAX technology. According to Wayne Davis, chief executive officer (CEO) at Vyyo, the break up will eliminate about $20 million a year in burn. The move will also allow Vyyo to transition from a large bureaucratic system to a more flexible and maneuverable company.
