Intel Plugs WiMax In The Jungle

Intel has brought WiMax to Parintins, an isolated city of 114,000 on an Amazon Basin island in Brazil. According to the company, the new network, which covers two schools, a hospital, a community center and a university, is expected to serve about 1,500 students and 10,000 community residents. Prior to this project, users can only access the Internet through dial-up connections while broadband service is only available through microwave or satellite connections.
