When it comes to anything to do with wireless internet, my faith suddenly drops to almost "Nil" even with the new WiMax. I prefer the old trusty wired which is fast and stable. Course, I don't need internet connectivity when I am outside the house or office.

Hi all, like streamyx my line is 1mb & my connection will be 2048 & actual download speed is around 1.5mbs. How about Wimax? Anyone try this wimax with online game such as DOTA? Really want to know the performance on online games & online tv such as pps.tv
