    Just a fyi, somewhere in Atlanta a a carrier is running a test of the WiMax network, the phone models are unknown and the carrier is being kept secret too, on my limited access to this info I know there is at least one blackberry involved, note that this is totally different to the wimax article published in BGR and Engadget recently.



    Now a question for you network gurus, if we now what's the equivalent to 3G in us carriers, what's the equivalent to 3.5G???
    I will comment then of course let cruz fix my mistakes 3.5G will be what AT&T is rolling out and the end of the summer which is their 7.2MB network. This is something that the iPhone will be access once AT&T turns the switch one. I believe that is called HSPDA.

    Or even better what the hell is 3.5G then?
    The reason I'm asking is because in my country there is a carrier that offers 3G and one that offers 3.5, both GSM.
    And the CDMA is 2G.
    HSDPA packet data service with a maximum transmission rate of 3.6Mbps.

    One of the reasons for the 3G standards war was the requirement to pay American company Qualcomm royalties on patents for several techniques necessary for a mobile CDMA system. LTE is not CDMA, so those royalties are avoided… but it turns out that Qualcomm filed or has purchased many patents that underpin LTE. Additionally, since LTE phones will have to be backwards-compatible with 3G CDMA networks, Qualcomm sees “no impact” on patent royalty revenue for the first ten years of LTE development according to COO Sanjay Jha.

    The 3GPP Technical Report 25.913 contains the detailed requirements specification for LTE. The system architecture, in Technical Specifications 36.300 and 36.401, is simplified to two principal network elements: evolved Network Base stations (eNBs) and Evolved Packet Cores (EPCs). eNBs communicate with EPCs, with each other and with user equipment.

    LTE is slated to become part of IMT-2000, the 3G “standard”, so in a strict standards committee environment, LTE would be called a 3G technology. An updated version, 3GPP release 10, which might be called LTE-Advanced, is expected to be submitted to the IMT-Advanced standards committee, which would cause those standards committee members to declare it officially a 4G standard. Everyone else will refer to LTE as 4G from the start.

    All further comments regarding 3G, 3.5G, 4G should directed to Dr. Cruznthru :banana:

    Clearwire launched in Atlanta June 16, 2009 Looks like they will be starting with the mobile VoIP handsets, then move on from there. The only WiMax device I know of at the moment, would be the Samsung Mondi.
