Is there anyone using Libyan Wimax?
I've been watching the news about Libya's Wimax Internet. It opened to the general public a few months ago but I only know one person that paid for a subscription and modem only to find that there was no reception where they lived (not far from Tripoli's city centre).
The other day I checked out their website to see if there was any information about where it's available but only parts of it are done and other parts are still under construction. I want to find out whether it will work in the area where we are building our house. There are no telephone lines in the area so that means no ADSL. We could get one of those wireless 'reefee' phones but I haven't met anyone that's been satisfied with the Internet available with them.
Today I noticed on the TechnoLibya blog that Wimax prices have gone down 100 dinars. I imagine they're trying to coax people into making the switch from ADSL. I certainly wouldn't want to spend the money only to find out the system didn't work. I don't think they'll give you a refund.
Is anybody using Wimax? What do you think of it? Comments please!
