Samsung helps WiMAX 2 streak to 330 Mbps in Japan

If nothing else, longtime WiMAX proponent Samsung is keeping things interesting in the broadband wireless space. The Korean electronics giant joined UQ Communications in a trial of 802.16m technology--better known as WiMAX 2--that resulted in network speeds of 330 Mbps.

During the trial, UQ streamed full HD 3D (read that one carefully) over Samsung's mobile WiMAX kit. The IEEE is expected to finalize its 802.16m standards in November at which point Samsung will start producing WiMAX 2 products for release at the end of 2011.
