Pipex-Intel WiMAX emerges as Freedom4

4 how much exactly?

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

The first serious attempt at a WiMAX ISP is getting tarted up for launch, but keeping its pricing cards close to its bosom.

Pipex and Intel Capital's joint venture has been branded Freedom4, and has a spanky new website here.

Freedom4 says it'll flog businesses a symmetrical 4Mbit/s connection, but not when or for how much. It's currently only accepting registrations of interest.

The "Home Worker" package provides symmetrical 1Mbit/s coverage, and Freedom4 says it'll guarantee data rates and install the kit within seven days of your order.

According to its coverage map, Manchester, Warwick and Milton Keynes are ready for punters already. The firm holds one of two national 3.6GHz WiMAX licences issued by Ofcom so far.

The other is owned by Hong Kong-based Pacific Century Cyber Works, which hoovered up 13 UK spectrum licences in 2003, but has failed to make use of them.

Pipex, in the process of dismantling itself, has high hopes for Freedom4. It's set to be spun out a separate business after trials registered "significant demand" for WiMAX. As it stands, Pipex CEO Mike Read retains overall control of the outfit. ®
