WiMAX Operators Draft Global Roaming Agreements

Sixteen WiMAX operators from across the globe met this week to draft roaming agreements between their networks. The meeting occurred at the first WiMAX Forum Global Operator Summit, which was hosted in Taipei.

"The WiMAX Forum Global Operator Summit was created to specifically address overcoming both business and consumer perceptions that data roaming is expensive, and to explore ways to help operators grow revenue," said Ron Resnick, president and chairman of the WiMAX Forum. "WiMAX has an established ecosystem with nearly 600 deployments around the world. The opportunity for operators to offer their customers roaming is there, and it is an excellent way for operators to add another viable revenue stream and earn returns on their 4G network investments." http://www.WiMAXForum.org
