WiMax war hotting up

The local Wimax war gets hotter by the day as the looming auction of spectrum closes in. After delaying it already, the Government needs to make sure they dont shoot the industry in the foot by pandering to the largest players.

To do so would destroy the benefits delivered by unbundling.

Woosh and other smaller carriers need a larger slice of the pie to make their plans viable, Telecom and Vodafone could bid in a way just to keep them out, leading to the calls to have the bigger players excluded.

Not truly an open market, but with an infrastructure as fragile as New Zealands, you need Government leadership to make the right calls.

In this case the needs of the public far outweighs any business fairness in the process.

Will the Goverment be hopping on one foot? Or leading the way?
