BellSouth’s WiMax Offered As Broadband Backup

Bellsouth is offering WiMax as backup service for broadband customers as a value added addon service for regular broadband custoemrs. The system was implimented after hurricane Katrina flooded central offices and delayed restoring broadband service. Using WiMax as a backup is a very good niche for WiMax to be in, however if your buying service in case of disaster, you probobly have other things to worry about. If you building blows away, not having broadband is the least of your worries. The service would be much more useful as a raoming value added where a home/business is using wired broadband and has WiMax available for emergency, but also allowing users to roam when away from the office and the service is not being used for backup.
