WiMax Operators Talk Global Roaming
A group of 16 WiMax network operators from around the world gathered in Taipei this week at the WiMAX Forum Global Operator Summit to discuss international WiMax roaming. Companies in attendance included Sprint, Intel, Samsung, Motorola, LG, Clearwire and a number of others.
