One of the biggest reasons there is no widespread acceptance of WiMAX is the lack of frequency availability. One of the proposed freq. spectrum's fell within the current the satellite C-band.
The idea was to reallocate the lower C-band for WiMAX microwave communication, but this turned out rather disastrous. Terrestrial microwave systems can be so powerful that they easily overpower satellite receivers.
In 2006, Bolivia rolled out a test WiMAX system during the World Cup. The test shut down about 30% of households receiving coverage through satellite. The outcry put an end to WiMAX tests in that area.
Perhaps the 700MHz spectrum would be a place to WiMAX to operate, we can only wait and see.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
