More on the same story:
Checking out OPEL's "likely" WiMAX coverage for my area:
<http://www.broadbandnow.gov.au/maps/nsw-sydney.htm>, two things strike me:-
* the tiny areas covered by ADSL (of any form) and;
* the WiMAX coverage areas are combinations of perfect circles.
Apparently, obstructions are not expected to have any impact.
Anyway, I'll wait with bated breath to find out whether:
* I can get service and;
* it's more reliable than satellite.
My broadband fails every afternoon. I guess it's the sun, blinding the
receiver (ipstar is ridiculously low in the sky to the Westnor'west).
