AOL UK Considering Wireless Broadband

Add AOL UK to the list of ISPs looking into wireless broadband. A lot of the article is speculation, but it they appear to be investigating wireless broadband as a better way to offer service to customers. If they did so, it would be another trial by a big name – which could help push more mainstream wireless broadband offerings forward. In this case, they would likely do a deal with UK Broadband, who recently launched a wireless broadband offering in the UK. While they’re using IPWireless’ TDD broadband wireless technology, expect many in the press to simply assume (completely incorrectly) that it will be WiMax. Hopefully, this time, the IPWireless people will make sure they’re a part of any AOL announcement.
