Wireless world

Scott Shamp, director of UGA’s New Media Institute, was quoted in a article about WiMAX, shorthand for World Interoperability for Microwave Access. “WiMax is an interesting kind of compromise between cellular and Wi-Fi coverage,” says Shamp, who helped create a Wi-Fi hotspot covering parts of Athens and UGA’s campus. “It gives you high data speeds like Wi-Fi but covers a much bigger geographic area like cellular ­coverage.”
