re: TWC Sets First WiMax Launch It is great to have such a fast service which will deliver upto 6 Mbps. WiMAX also assures QoS, so once a service is set up, it will maintain a relaibly constant throughput unlike EV-DO or HSPA. If the average rate is 4 Mbps, you can download 24 MBytes in a minute, which starts to good look for streaming video or songs, or to download them.As WiMAX sees be delivered at better sppeds like 6 Mbps, the monthly caps of 2GB start to look funny.If one presumes that the average spped will be 4 mbps, or 24 MBytes a minute, a 1GB data transfer is reached in just 40 minutes.A 2GB limit gives less than three minutes of such connectivity a day. They also have an unlimited plan at $49.95 for cable subscribers, which looks much better.Then why bother offering plans for just 2GB?
We hope that as the markets mature, more reasonable caps will be offered.

re: TWC Sets First WiMax Launch

It probably won't take too long for those taking this capped lite tier long to figure out whether that tier's appropriate for their usage levels. 2GB isn't really that much, so I'd guess that the vast majority of subs will go for one of the Elite-level tiers.  Or if no one takes the capped tier, TWC may have to beef up that cap to make it more attractive to people who want WiMax but just don't want to (or can't) pay what the other tiers are selling for.  JB
