AT&T WiMAX Deployment

According to the WSJ AT&T is going to test pre-WiMAX roll-out in Georgia this fall. AT&T earlier this year conducted smaller trials of the technology in laboratories and in small communities in New Jersey and Alaska. BellSouth Corp. recently said it plans a trial of a similar wireless-broadband service.

For the Georgia trial, AT&T is in the process of building four transmission towers: one in downtown Atlanta and three others in Alpharetta, a community north of Atlanta. AT&T hopes to enlist roughly 30 large corporate customers for the trial.

I wonder if this deployment will be the kick start the WiMAX market needs to get it into high gear.
