Mobile WiMax: On the Road at Last?

Sure, we're behind the curve on this by a few months, but we're seriously considering taking the Jalopnik circus wagon on the road, as technologies like WiMax that enable truly mobile Internet access (that means no more working from Starbucks), get closer to reality. Forbes recently took a closer look at WiMax — our only misgiving with which is the "M" (the "microwave" part of Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) — one such solution, backed by Intel. But don't think it's the only access play in town. Another solution, known as Mobile-Fi, can support vehicle speeds in the supercar range, compared with WiMax's limit of around 60mph. Either way, we may be blogging from Big Sur or The Grand Canyon or the stands at Spa Franchorchamps sooner than you'd think.
