Seattle Gets Pre-WiMax Via Speakeasy




Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Business Tools, News

Businesses based in Seattle has a new high speed data alternative available to them which launched this past week. Speakeasy has put a Pre-WiMax antenna at the top of the world famous Space Needle. In conjunction with Intel and Alvarion, Speakeasy has made it known that the high speed network will cover a five-mile radius around the city’s most famous landmark, offering customers two data plans to choose from. Bruce Chaterly, Speakeasy CEO, announced that this is the biggest deployment of this technology thus far in North America with six towers in total having been erected in the city. Of course, with bleeding edge technology comes high prices. For a 3.0 Gb bandwidth plan, the price is $500 per month. There is also a 6.0 Gb plan which can be had for $800 per month. At first glance, this looks a bit steep - however, many companies pay about $500 per month for a 1.5 Gb T1 connection. Check out the details on Speakeasy’s WiMax page.
