Japanese Wimax operator UQ Communications plans a soft launch of its mobile Wimax (IEEE 802.16e) service called ‘UQ Wimax’ this month. UQ will test the services in all 23 wards of Tokyo, in Yokohama, and Kawasaki, and is seeking 5,000 trial users. The company will officially launch nation-wide services at the start of July this year. Intel will provide the company with embedded Wimax devices, including Intel Centrino 2 processor-based notebooks and Intel Atom processor-based netbooks in the coming months. UQ Communications will offer flat-rate plans, with the basic plan starting at JPY 4,480 per month.
