My specialization and research in school is wireless networks. Hence WiMAX is an exciting topic for me. Looks like Intel is putting out an intial chipset. While things are not WiMAX certified yet, equipment manufacturers will take some time to come out with the necessary base stations as well as individual cards for desktops and other units.
For those non-tech junkies, this will have significant political impact. Imagine a total change in the telecom industry, imagine greater Internet access for the poor. These are merely two of the dramatic changes WiMAX will bring about.
