Description
After years of anticipation and hyperbole, WiMAX has now seen the light of day in 305 deployments across 118 countries, according to the WiMAX Forum’s count in June 2008. Emerging markets, short on broadband offerings, accounted for more than 60% of subscribers on WiMAX networks globally in 2007. In this report, Pyramid Research provides an in-depth assessment of commercial WiMAX networks and operator go-tomarket strategies in emerging economies. The report examines the competitive dynamics, end-user demand patterns and market potential of WiMAX, from adoption rates to spectrum licensing trends.

Built around nine case studies of WiMAX operators in emerging markets, WiMAX in Emerging Markets analyzes best practices and lessons learned about addressable customer segments, marketing strategies, product and pricing strategies, and distribution methods for WiMAX networks.
