Andy had a chance to read my Covad interview with Jeff Ahlquist and commented that their was no WiMAX mention.
I reached out to Andy on the matter to ask him what he knows about Covad and WiMAX. This is what he said:
Covad already has Voice and DSL. WiMAX means they deliver the latter without the need for the telco.
Recently they bought a pre-WiMAX company and have already deployed trial service in Las Vegas. It’s working beyond everyone’s expectations are the reports I’m getting.
Many people feel the LECs will buy all the WiMAX licenses in the US so that they can prevent any real competition. Hopefully a company like Covad has deep enough pockets to play in the WiMAX game and be a big factor in reducing broadband prices and expanding options.
