WiBro

Matria da revista The Walrus, fala de problemas como Wi-Fi e da tendncia crescente para a implantao de Wi-Max ou Wi-Bro, testado em Seoul:

“Plans for municipal broadband initiatives, such as free Wi-Fi in parks, have often fizzled because coverage was expected to be spotty and service providers predicted financial losses. The new future of the wired city is wimax, or WiBro, a variation of the technology being tested in Seoul, South Korea. WiBro is cheap high-speed wireless with a range of several kilometres, and users can connect from subway stations, tunnels, and cars moving at 120 kilometres an hour. Its North American cousin is the be-all and end-all of wireless, according to University of California, San Diego, computer engineer Lawrence Larson, and communications companies will be rolling it out as soon as next year.”
