The South Korean government has approved a new standard that will enable voice service on the country's existing and future WiBro networks. WiBro is a Korean brand for Mobile WiMAX technology. Mobile WiMAX networks have previously been limited to data service only.

Apparently you all did not understand my point of the thread. VOIP has already been discussed within the US market in Wimax. Check out youtube for some demonstrations. I understand global markets and tech is important to what happens around the world, but it seems the only story I see about WiMax is in the foreign market. And every other day I see an LTE story. VOIP with Wimax (old Idea). Has anyone even read the paragraph/story? It's nothing new, enough said.
im sorry everyone, but i have to agree with stoopered. I was reading a few articles on rcrwireless news that were alot more interesting than korea getting wimax. you really cant get into too much detail than just plain out saying "korea is getting wim...
It's nothing new...to you. For the casual Phonescooper, this may be the first exposure to the idea. I say let's get it going. Perhaps there will be no need for dual mode Wi-Max/CDMA handsets if WiMax can allow voice AND data. Again, I do not know ...

Ok so this is the best story found about WiMax. I appreciate Phone-scoops support for world news, but I am more interested in the US Wimax network. WiBro is old new and isn't the same Wimax that will be instituted within the US. Please give some new about Wimax in the US market like new devices. Also at least update us on Kyocera (Sanyo's old mobile Dept.). Was it fully acquired? I know Sanyo was big in the development in the MIMO Wimax Antenna research. They also work hard on being a big supplier of Wimax devices... Is this still true? Please bring some interesting stories.
This site does not tailor to your needs specifically. Grow up.
While I agree that I'm more interested in the US market, it's still important that we know and understand what other countries are doing to develop better technologies. Even though this doesn't directly effect you and your world, it is a step forward ...

There are no interesting stories about WiMax in the US. Every US carrier except for one doesn't care about it
This is absolutely relevant to the US. We have WiMAX networks here now. If voice has been introduced on a WiMAX network somewhere in the world for the first time, then that's one step toward potentially having voice over WiMAX here in the US.
Maybe there is no such news currently available. Obviously, most of us do not have your extensive knowledge of Wi-Max. This article was for us.
