They are different markets. Wi-Max is intended for larger areas, and
they are public networks, rather than private ones. Basically, they are
nice for roaming around town, but you wouldn't want to have any shares
set as anyone on the network could then access your data. Many cities
are in the process of setting up such networks for the convenience of
their citizens, at little cost to each. Some states (mine included) are
considering legislation to protect the service providers from government
competition, limiting the cities to installing the networks, and
requiring that they be operated by private companies, much like cable
systems.
