Converge this

Pipex, probably little-known outside the UK (though at 200k DSL subs should be considered a major league player in UK broadband), is launching VoIP across its full customer base (previously it only offered it to business customers via its Nildram sub-brand). For GBP4.99 per month, broadband subs will get 3,000 minutes (ouch!) to fixed lines in the 01 and 02 standard number ranges. This company is the owner of the only nationwide license covering 3.6 - 4.2GHz, and will be a stealth player in the increasingly confused UK wireless market.

UPDATE: Lars updates on the state of play in Austria, where WiMAX Telecom is looking to spend EUR70m over 3.5 years to get 70% population coverage in a much more difficult terrain with a more dispersed population.
