The world's first WiMAX 802.16e 2005 (Rev e) network at 3.5GHz has been launched in the Dominican Republic. The network has been provided to the new operator Onemax and supplied by Alcatel Lucent.
"The launch of Onemax is generating a great deal of excitement in the Dominican Republic, an ideal market for WiMAX technology because of its strong economy and relatively large and young population of more than 9 million people whose rapidly growing demand for broadband services needs to be met," said Raoul Fontanez, Onemax CEO. "We are going to open the door to the new concept of Mediacom provider: Internet, telephony, and new communication services. With this concept information technology and entertainment are fully integrated in our customer's daily experience. We greatly appreciate the work performed by Alcatel-Lucent to date. We selected Alcatel-Lucent as our exclusive partner because they were the first to delivery WiMAX Rev-e solutions."
A ceremony later today in Santo Domingo will mark the official launch of ONEMAX's new network.
