Communications Companies Benefit From Terrorists?

NameGizmodo reported that the Sprint WiMax network is going live in Q4 2007.

I think that of passenger planes flying between the USA and the UK is terrible news for beleaguered airline brands, but excellent news for communications brands.

As Seth Godin , air travel is getting to be . Today might be the final straw for those of us who are tempted to just stop doing it.

This means that any company that can allow us to efficiently hold meetings on the PC via video conferencing or any other electronic communication is likely to succeed.

I have been following the with interest but found it an interesting coincidence that today Gizmodo that Sprint Nextel will be using WiMax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) to build their wireless network (named 4G).

I like the WiMax brand name, and am just as excited to learn that 4G now has a serious investment behind it.

In the end, however, there’s no substitute for an occasional face-to-face meeting. Until Star Trek teleporting arrives.
