14 mln WiMAX subscribers by 2011

Wi-Fi proved not to be a successful business model, but WiMAX is now gathering momentum and is expected to reach 14 million subscribers by 2011. Cellular subscribers reached 859 million, with over 130 million 3G users in the Asia/Pacific region in 2005. Mobile WiMAX devices are anticipated to be available beginning in late 2007, In-Stat says.
