In Western Europe, WiMAX has been mainly used for fixed services in rural areas, with some services offering mobility in a specific location or city. While a promising technology, WiMAX still lacks critical mass, due to a shortage of certified end-user products on the market, few commitments from larger operators and delays in issuing the required spectrum. A number of countries are in the process of releasing lower frequencies, such as in the 2.6 GHz band and from the "digital dividend", which should give WiMAX more opportunities. Current WiMAX internet offers are not as competitive as ADSL, cable or mobile broadband, and often compete in very saturated, low-price markets. Telecompaper believes WiMAX will remain a niche technology during the next few years, used mainly to complement existing cellular technologies in Western Europe.
