Motorola and Primus give Toronto a taste of WiMAX


Fresh from its demo of Sprint's Xohm WiMAX network in Chicago, Motorola's now teamed up with Primus and Mipps Inc. to give Torontonians a taste of some Canadian-flavored wireless broadband, which the companies say should become available to the general public at some point in the future. For the trial, Motorola supplied its wi4 WiMAX solution, with Mipps supplying the 3.5 GHz spectrum that it owns in some 40 licensed areas across the country. While Toronto's getting all the attention at the moment, Primus says the trial "could lead to a roll-out in other centers across Canada in the coming months," although it's apparently not quite ready to make any firm commitments just yet.
