A new, faster generation of wireless Internet



By PETER CROOKES
Maximum range: WiMax is a form of wireless Internet that operates in much the same way as Wi-Fi, but offers greater range, in theory up to 40 km from a central transmitter, and faster speeds than its sibling. It is also just starting in Japan, whereas Wi-Fi is ubiquitous. As part of a concerted push to promote WiMax in Japan, Onkyo's computing outfit, Sotec, has just brought out a netbook that comes equipped with both Wi-Fi and WiMax.
