Canadian Town Gets WiMax

Despite being a small town, Hanna in Alberta, Canada is home to six WiMax towers. The facilities, which comprise Nortel base stations and customer premises gear (or subscriber stations) with radios based on the IEEE 802.16d fixed WiMax standard, were installed by Netago Wireless. The company offers subscribers various data plans, with uplink speeds ranging from 1.5 Mbit/s to 3 Mbit/s and download rates of around 512 kbit/s. Netago president and founder Terry Duchcherer believes the plans’ prices of $35 to $150 are “fairly comparable to DSL service.”
