Wireless broadband made up less than 8 per cent of the wireless market and about 5 per cent of the entire market. Currently the wireless broadband technology of choice is RadioEthernet, or IEEE 802.11, wireless technology, although the research firm expects WiMAX to become more popular in the upcoming year. Approximately 100,000 households use combined broadband technologies, where providers offer wireless technologies in the 'last mile' and wireline technologies in the 'last metre.'
