WiMAX roll-out is a joke

The Energy, Water and Communications Minister Datuk Seri Dr Lim Keng Yaik has announced that the WiMAX roll-out has been delayed till next year.

The earlier plan was to have at least 25% coverage at the given area with at least a minimum 1Mbps speed at affordable rate.

The reason of the delay was due to the fact that the Government wants all WiMAX operators to share the cost and infrastructure of rolling out the service.

What might be next?
