Crank up the wireless

Across the pond Covad has made a move on NextWeb to speed access to customers and cut the cost of gaining that access in the first place. Clearly this is a product of the rather unfortunate recent direction of regulation in the States (and $19m is a lot of Covad paper), but it makes me wonder about FWA as a catalyst for M&A in Europe. T-Mobile continues to work on its proto-WiMAX train project in the UK, and given what DT is doing in the French and Spanish DSL markets, I have a hard time accepting that Pipex wouldn't be of interest.
