Intel CEO: WiMAX More Attractive Than DSL, Cable

Whoa....them's fightin' words! Intel CEO Craig Barrett, in an interview with the Reuters news service, called DSL and cable access "half-assed in terms of speed."

Well...he's right. Cable and DSL rarely deliver speeds faster than 5Mbps. While WiMAX will deliver twice that speed, which should make it attractive for many home users especially in rural areas. But geez....he sure threw down the gauntlet didn't he?! Note to Craig....careful how you're quoted in public. Right or wrong.

If you'd like more WiMax news....even the uncensored kind....trek over to
