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. The goal of the summit was to start a dialog that will eventually lead to the ability of WiMax users to roam onto WiMax networks in other countries. Sprint has already inked several such deals with Jamaica's Digicel and Taiwan's Global Mobile. The companies in attendance haven't revealed when a system might actually be put to widespread use.

Sounds like a Global Standard to me
Sprint already has roaming agreements with other countries. Glad to see more Wimax partners stepping up to the plate. 😎
