Yestday we got the WiMAX connection to our office from Dialog Broadband. Here are some pics which was taken when its installed.
Configuration was simple. They connect the laptop to the antenna / control unit using a web browser and Ethernet connection, like how you configure a DSL router. After that they configured the frequency for the cell.
Even though, WiMAX doesn't need line-ofsight to work, they have to turn it around to get the maximum signal strength. They said even the reflection of the single would also work.
Initial speed tests
The purchased package was Ultra which should have speeds of 4000kb/s for download and 1000kb/s for upload (theoretically). These tests were done by connecting a single PC.
It doesn't have the promised 4Mbps speeds, but currently it has fairly decent speeds. Hope they will maintain the same quality in the future. ( At least half of the promised bandwidth as its shared bandwidth :-( )
Anyway I got 450Kbps on FlashGet for downloads from download.com using 10 threads
Here is a presentation from dialog which has the details of the available packages.
Flash presentation would take some time load. Pls wait or check it @ http://www.slideshare.net/koolb/dialog-broadnet-brief/1
