Remember "Westworld"? Well, WiMAX World, going on this week in Chicago, is absent of gun-slinging robots that look like Yul Brynner, but it should be renamed West World anyway in honor of Barry West, Sprint CTO and head of the carrier's Xohm unit. He's leading the charge with WiMAX, a technology more people are beginning to see as a realistic alternative to DSL.
West this week offered some ground-breaking ideas for busting tradition wireline and wireless broadband models. We can hardly wait for Xohm's commercial debut next year.
