Market Entry

In broadband, the reason for the Market Entry score not reaching 3 may be due to Internet Service Providers’ restriction (by GoB) against entering the new wireless broadband (WiMax) market. In addition, many experts think that the two operators who got the license for this newly introduced service through a bidding system paid extensively for the assigned spectrum, which resulted in a relatively slow roll out of the WiMax services.
