PluggedIn: Fed Up with DSL? Go Wireless
Posted: 26-Jun-2002 [Source: Reuters]

[Soma's new wireless box available later this year will create wireless connections based on W-CDMA at speeds up to 12 megabits per second.]

by Reed Stevenson, Seattle -- "After digital subscriber line services promising high-speed Net access over existing copper telephone wires fell well short of expectations -- with lengthy delays and installation problems -- a new wireless technology will come out later this year that promises to eliminate the hassle of getting broadband at home.

It's a wireless connection based on third-generation mobile phone technology that will bypass problematic wire and cable networks to deliver fast Internet and telephone access to homes and businesses over airwaves.

"My impression is that people want broadband, and they're not concerned whether its 100 K (kilobits per second) or 1 Meg (megabits per second)," said Greg Caltabiano, Soma Networks Inc.'s senior vice president for Worldwide Networks.

"They just want it to work," he said."
