Yep more WIMAX hype. He is using 802.11b. That is why he sees 5.5 megs.

And these are the people who sway public policy......

All,

Then I would guess the following statement can be a little confusing. :-)

As quoted in the article;

"While AT&T's WiMAX service is not publicly available, one tester already has a review: Ed Whitacre, and he gives it an enthusiatic thumbs up. He told GigaOM.com after the speech that he uses the service at his home in Texas and gets 5.5 Mbps downstream over unlicensed spectrum. "It's
not ready for primetime, but I really like it," he said."

Regards,
Dawn DiPietro

Lonnie, LOL. I knew as soon as that link was posted the dissing would
start.
AT&T is a company to watch because they own spectrum and have capital. He
was clear in saying that he was using UL and not Wimax BTW. Brad

I have 40 mbps to my house and it is not WiMax and I am the CEO of a
much smaller company.  If that is the best a huge company like that
can do then they will not be a threat to anybody.
