IDA Random Musing

IDA allocates 2.3 Ghz and 2.5 Ghz spectrum for Trials and Commercial Deployment

While I am not directly involved in this, I am proud to see this announcement from IDA today! Well done! Congz to all all my friends who been working on this!

The Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) today announced the allocation of dedicated spectrum bands for trials and commercial deployment of wireless broadband. This move is timely as various wireless broadband technologies are now ready for trial or deployment. When deployed, these new technologies could provide Singapore with an additional broadband infrastructure, thus giving consumers more choices and options when going “broadband”.

The significant of 2.3 Ghz and 2.5 Ghz is that it is used by IEEE 802.16 also known WiMax. Although WiMax works between 2 Ghz to 66 Ghz, the 2.3 Ghz and 2.5 Ghz band gives you the longest distance.

I hope we’ll see some WiMax provider soon :-) Wheez!
