Where is Mobile WiMAX Today?

A very good comment about the state of WiMax from

It lists two good differentiators for WiMax over its more traditional cellular competitors: intrinsic support for IP, and the use of the OFDMA air interface.

It also suggests that the momentum for WiMax rollouts will come from the bottom up, rather from large scale deployment by the big telcos. Not sure if I agree with that one - if the technology is suitable it will be used - but it makes a good point that many wireless startups fail waiting for that big telco contact.
