[Fz] Intel sticks to WiMAX in 2012

Cannot let go


When it comes to notebook computing Intel cannot let WiMAX go. Even though WiMAX is technically 4G none of USA networks major mobile providers have chosen it as a standard for their 4G networks and it doesn’t look that great for Europe either. In the long run LTE looks like 4G of the future for most carriers.

Despite this, Intel’s wireless performance roadmap includes a lot of WiMAX. The year 2012 for Intel wireless won’t bring much innovation as the currently available Intel Centrino Ultimate N 6300 codenamed Puma Peak remains the top offer for the rest of the year and Q1 2013.

Sprint is using WiiMax currently and will continue to do so through 2015, I believe. They have begun the transition to LTE, though.

Biggest difference(s) are the frequency its on. Wimax has higher frequency and shorter range as LTE is lower frequency and longer range.
