Nextel today announced plans to construct a trial high-speed wireless broadband data network in the Washington, D.C. area using UMTS TD-CDMA technology from IPWireless. The network will utilize Nextel's 2.5 GHz licensed spectrum band. The network will launch in the third quarter, with the trial lasting for a minimum for six months. Nextel plans to test a range of services over the network, including broadband data for laptops, desktops or PDAs, video streaming, online gaming, and video conferencing. The network is not yet expected to be offered commercially to the general public. IPwireless' technology has already been adopted by T-Mobile in the Czech Republic. Nextel recently conducted a successful trial of competing Flash-OFDM technology from Flarion in North Carolina.
