Karl Bode on new wireless standards

"31 Flavors: New players in the wireless standard jumble"
"Using wireless technology for "last mile" connectivity is hardly new; in the late nineties the FCC auctioned off bandwidth for something called Local Multipoint Distribution Service (LMDS). The supposed perk of technologies such as 802.16 and LMDS is that they're less expensive than comparable alternatives. Only this time, with Intel and other big players at the helm tinkering with various 802.16 flavors, some think the standard could be the proverbial kick in the pants the wireless sector needs. Still, hardware based on the 802.16 standard likely won't be widely available for some time."
