Abstract: Broadband services are here and here to stay. Many technology options are available to create the broadband technology mosaic. In the market place. XDSL, HFC, Fiber to the curve, and BWA are key components of the broadband technology mosaic. In past twelve months, WiMAX has build considerable amount of momentum for BWA. With rapid 3G deployment around the world and the BWA echo system galvanizing around WiMAX, this panel will first make a reality check on what WiMAX is and what it is not, discuss the role of WiMAX in the broadband technology mosaic on a global basis, and provide the audience a realistic view of what impact WiMAX will have on the digital divide.
