About the WiMax Network(WiMax Map)
The WiMax network was established in the fall of 2011. In 2010 the FCC, which issued EBS (Educational Broadband Spectrum) to local educational institutions over a decade ago, announced they intended to withdraw the licenses of those school systems who had not built out the infrastructure. Although some of the local schools had leased the rights to private entities during that time, those private entities had not yet built out the network either. Recognizing the value of this capability, the City of Chanute worked with four separate entities to secure the lease rights and built out the beginning of the network. Those schools include:
- Neosho County Community College
- USD 413 (Chanute School District)
- USD 101 (Erie School District)
- Greenbush Educational Services
We are very excited about the possibilities of using this infrastructure.
