Report on Wimax
WiMAX technology has been approved by Bangladesh Government in last quater of 2008 in Bangladesh. Use of this technology has been increased through the passage of time. WiMAX combines the performance of Wi-Fi with the range and quality of service (QOS) of a carrier-grade cellular technology.

• WiMAX network just as an ISP without any cable because WiMAX signal used to get access to internet to your home or business, while Wi-Fi will be used inside in your local area network (LAN) for access to the internet.

• WiMAX network providing Quos (Quality of Service) therefore a large number of people get access to tower at the same time. The built in algorithm automatically transfer the user to other tower or cell of WiMAX station. Unlike Wi-Fi user have to sort of fight to stay on connected with a specified access point.
• The most significant issue of WiMAX and Wi-Fi difference is pricing because WiMAX is a high cost network, while Wi-Fi is a low cost network therefore mostly people adopt Wi-Fi network due to less expenditure and avoid WiMAX due to expensive installations.
• WiMAX offer high speed internet as a
