WiMAX Wireless Network to be Deployed in Montreal, Canada

Montreal will soon deliver wireless Internet and mobile IP telephony to residents. A new WiMAX based Wi-Fi network is being deployed across the metropolitan area, as a result of a joint venture between two Quebec-based businesses: independent Internet service provider Radioactif.com and Nomade Télécom, wireless network installer and operator.

The new wireless services will be made available first to residents of Montreal's Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood.

It will provide an affordable alternative to the oligopoly maintained by companies currently providing telephone, cellular and Internet service.
