Farming village goes Wimax

Filed under: IT by Orangemaster @ 12:05 pm

The 1,400 or so residents of the wee village of Knegsel in the province of Noord-Brabant are the first in the Netherlands to get to use a new wireless Internet service via Wimax. Internet company Casema expects much from the possible successor of UMTS. It is 13 times as fast and is perfect for areas where residents are spread thin. In and around Knegsel there are three antennas, which provide wireless broadband Internet over distances of up to 25 kilometres.
