Nordnet to cease WiMAX service in Nord-Pas-de-Calais

Friday 5 June 2009 | 11:08 CET | News
French ISP Nordnet will end its WiMAX service in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais departement on 30 June, the company's sales director told Ariase. The decision stems from WiMAX network operator Bollore Telecom's decision to stop selling wholesale services to Nordnet, according to Pierre Etienne Pernet, the president of consumer group "Sauvez le Wimax en Artois". The group has written to the county and regional councils to complain about the move. In the meantime, Nordnet is proposing for its WiMAX subscribers to opt for satellite service.
