Are 430 million people currently covered by WiMAX technology as stated by Ron Resnick, president of the WiMAX Forum. The technology of wireless broadband is available in 135 countries and in Italy has started recently, although the current prices leaving a cloud of uncertainty on real growth of the platform, at least in the short term.

By next year, according to estimates by the WiMAX Forum, the spread of the network will cover over 800 million people with the market launch of approximately 1,000 certified products. It remains to be seen if you actually manage to implement the coverage in Italy, a country that is geographically disadvantaged by the large presence of mountains that slow down the spread dell'ADSL cable.
