Pipex Wireless’ second commercial trial of WiMAX services is set to go live in Warwick. Working with National Grid Wireless, Warwick District Council and Intel Solutions Services, the trial will launch at the European Cup Race Walking Championships, where press, competitors and spectators will have access to high-speed wireless broadband.
As the UK’s first wireless solutions provider to launch WiMAX services, Pipex Wireless will initially deliver services to Warwick District Council and subsequently approach businesses and home-users in the Warwick trial area over the next six months.
“We are delighted to be providing our WiMAX services in Warwick. Following the early success of trials in Milton Keynes, we are excited about being able to offer high speed wireless broadband to other forward-thinking towns and cities,” comments Mike Read, CEO, Pipex Wireless. “The event in Warwick provides the ideal setting for launching our wireless services in the area. As we develop the service further, we’ll be inviting local businesses and home users to take part in the trial to make wireless broadband a reality.”
Chris Elliott, Chief Executive of Warwick District Council says, “I am delighted that our innovative approach to technology and transformation agenda has attracted Pipex Wireless to our town. We look forward to developing the trial with Pipex Wireless and extending the benefits of wireless broadband to our community.”
Pipex Wireless will be demonstrating WiMAX powered internet access with laptop manufacturer, rock, during the European Cup Race Walking event.
Nick Boardman, CEO of rock, comments “As a premier laptop manufacturer based in Warwick, we are thrilled to be partnering with Pipex and supporting Pipex Wireless at the Race Walking Championships.
