According to gigaom, Intel plans on starting Wimax trials in India. The report goes on to predict that India will have 13 million Wimax subscribers by 2012.

Been reading that the Indian government has been banking on Wimax for Broadband penetration in the country. So the numbers cited in the report dont exactly seem very overwhelming. But then again, the technology is in its very nascent stages. ( The report also talks about a disagreement between the CDMA and GSM providers on spectrum reservations for Wimax)

Interesting article. And if the rate of telephony progress in India is any indicator, there will probably be a broadbased revision of those numbers cited above. Worth watching and following.
