So you think we hit a strike 3 with Iburst.
Iburst is watching Sentech and they don`t want to end up in the same boat as them.
So Repeat this Chant

Iburst will Rule,Iburst will Rule.


Google is so smart,I typed in Hellkom and guess what google said

Don`t you mean.....<insert evil laugh>

I agree, I dont think Iburst will land up like Sentech.
The thing that Iburst is doing well and very different to Sentech is the fact that they have around 150 testers using the service for a full year before going live.

My Iburst has been connected for a full week now without me pinging out from IRC or getting disconnected.

IBURST STABILITY SEEMS TO ROCK!!

Not so many people are on the iBurst network at the moment.
So you can't really talk about the quality right now.

Howcome there wont be any testers in CT?

Surely they will have to test their network infra-structure here when they set it up?

I shall await *hoping* that they will need some CT testers.

armitage, wimax is a technology like wifi (802.11/a/b/g). it is also known as 802.16 or 802.20, not sure which... it will allow a transfer rate of something rediculous like 500Mbps over short distances (&lt;5km) and can transmit at 54mbps &gt;54km away. aparently mountains and houses will also not be a problem... no LOS needed!

these numbers above are what i remember... and not the actual figures. everything is speculation at this stage as (as far as i know), there is no standard yet.

telkom is currently doing testing (or will be shortly) in SA with WiMAX. Intel is supporting the technology and helping telkom with the testing.

i didnt ask bout wimax. I know telkom is partnering with Intel to bring it out locally in 2007 or something here but at this point in time WIMAX just as well doesnt exist as far as im concerned. Im all bout getting the most meters per antenna out of my wifi connection.
