What is WiMAX?

WiMAX is an acronym that stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. Products that are WiMAX certified follow the protocols and standards of the WiMAX standards body. Similar to WiFi but more powerful, WiMAX is a fourth generation or 4-G technology representing the state-of-art in both fixed and mobile broadband wireless technology.

What are the benefits of WiMAX?

WiMAX delivers much higher speeds and vastly improved performance over older wireless technologies.

"Thanks for all your help these last couple days, you all are great people over there at Farmers Mutual Telephone Company!! So far it has worked out very well. Overall we are finding that it is much faster than what we previously had. You offer a host of unique packages that will work well for those who don’t feel the need for speed as well as the higher tech WiMAX version for those who do need the additional speed. Again the folks at Farmers Mutual Telephone Company are always great to work with, FMTC employees are a great team of knowledgeable, professional and caring individuals."  -- Lyla Gurwell
