WiMax - yes, what DID happen to that?

>> In PCW, we boldly asserted that WiMax would start to be more widely available in 2008. Still waiting for that one.

Areas which get a really bum deal from ADSL include those on copper runs >3Km from the exchange, or indeed areas which HAVE FFTC but where the cabinet is > 1Km from site, so ADSL speeds are stuck around 2Mb/s. WIMAX really ought to be the best option for the last hop in areas like that. So what did happen to it?
