Manchester WiMax

There is a rumour going round that English conerbation round Manchester (2.2 million people) is to get high Speed wireles Internet access. It looks like this could be a competitors to existing services both in terms of speed and reach.

Compared to the feint hearted Wimax offerings eleswhere (slow, patchy and tentative Milton Keynes is an example - where whole villages are still on dial up - Nash being an example) , The manchester service could compete on comparable terms with the likes of BT.
