There are basically three different options for accessing internet today, i.e., broadband access, Wi-Fi access and dial up access. But the main problems with broadband access are that it is very costly and it's not reachable to all the areas. The problem with Wi-Fi access is that hot spots are very tiny, so coverage is sparse. This paper discusses a new technology i.e. WIMAX that will overcome all the limitations of the above techniques. Cable and DSL services can be replaced with WiMAX, providing universal Internet access just about anywhere the user go.
