Intel and PIPEX Create WiMAX Carrier for the UK

Intel Capital and PIPEX Communications are jointly funding PIPEX Wireless, a wireless operator which will provide broadband services in major metropolitan areas across the UK. Intel Capital is investing US$25 million in the new company. PIPEX has transferred its entire 3.6GHz UK spectrum license to PIPEX Wireless to deploy services based on WiMAX.

PIPEX Wireless anticipates the roll-out of its network to begin in London and Manchester in 2007, and target the top eight population centers by 2008.
