The cost-effective path that WiMax is traversing actually leads to mass-market that embraces the wireless broadband services. The experience that users acquire in wireless broadband does not just offer the advantage of mobility but a wide-ranging alternative for business strategies and other technology plans and projects.
And the often highlighted subject matter intended for WiMax is the cost of WiMax that is spent in network deployment which is lower if compared with the cost in 3G and 3.5G deployment of its infrastructures.
However, the WiMax operators usually charge the user’s internet access higher monthly fees when compared with DSL providers. The rationale behind such action is that, customers get more advanced and high quality internet access than DSL. With this regard WiMax providers take chance in offering competitive throughputs which are more improved in broadband coverage. Also the ease and speed of internet connectivity, the service quality, and the customer care and security are far better than other wireless and wired broadband providers.
The customer response on the other hand is unexpected and interesting to point out, since they would rather pay a little bit higher price just to avail better service in any market including WiMax products and services. However, not all consumers agree with this kind of set-up. Hence, WiMax still manages to make its price more competitive while providing and serving multiple users of wireless broadband network.
Apparently, the prices of products and services of WiMax operators are regarded to be expensive since Wimax operators’ reason is that: Wimax throughputs are undoubtedly higher as compared to the always threatened DSL products and services.
