  1. Who are the other manufactures which will support 4G WiMAX? Additionally, it’s 2011 now and is the service available? If so, what are the costs…?

  2. IF I HAVE A DIGICEL MODEM NOW, WILL I BE ABLE TO USE IT WHEN THE 4 G SYSTEM GETS STARTED.
    SECONDLY, ITS VERY EXPENSIVE NOW WITH DIGICEL, WILL IT BE AFFORDABLE?

  3. (1) Can anybody tell me what the difference is between 3G with HSPDA and 4G?

    (2) Is/will be Skype available on Digicel 4G or LIME 3G or Claro 3G?
