Intel Trying To Make Georgia County Go Wireless

Intel continues their promotional push for wireless, but this time they’re adding a bit of WiMax to the mix as well. They’re talking to officials from Houston County in Georgia about making it the “first wireless county”, and covering the entire county with WiMax to let anyone log on from anywhere. At least, if that works out, their commercials will be a bit more accurate. It’s not a done deal yet, and it’s unclear right now who would foot the $2 million bill to WiMax up the county, but it sounds like it’s going to happen. Intel would love to do it for the promotional value of having a working WiMaxed county, and the county would love to do it to make them look technologically ahead of the curve. It’s just a question of whether or not that’s worth $2 million to both sides.
