The latest research report from Maravedis notes that the top 22 wireless operators worldwide will contribute nearly 2.5 million WiMAX subscribers by the end of 2009. This is an increase of 1.24 million subscribers over current figures, with totals reaching close to 4 million by the end of 2010 according to the report, "The Top 22: Operators Who Will Make or Break WiMAX."

According to Robert Syputa, Partner and Senior Analyst for Maravedis, "It is important to keep in mind that WiMAX is just now entering a phase of commercial availability that makes volume applications, including machine to machine, utility monitoring, metro-wide mobile broadband, and embedded consumer applications, feasible. In addition, the lean WiMAX ecosystem has already reached price points for ICs, modules and devices to compete in volume markets."
