The deployment of WiMAX technology, particularly in developing areas, is based on the difficulties inherent in deploying today’s available competing technologies. Wireline technologies are slow and costly to roll out in parts of developed nations. Current cellular network technology can be too costly to use depending on breadth of network coverage, and does not deliver true broadband speed and is simpler to expand since it is an all IP media-centric network. Therefore it is assumed that particularly aggressive WiMAX growth will take place in countries such as Brazil, China, India and Russia; and in regions such as the Americas, Middle East/Africa, Eastern Europe and Developing Asia Pacific.
