This paper describes one of the largest WiMax based wireless broadband networks in the world and how it was implemented in co-operation between public authorities and private companies. The aim of the network is to ensure regional equality and increase the competitiveness of the sparsely populated area. There are two major findings in our paper. Firstly, our preliminary evaluations indicate that WiMax provides an effective and reliable transmission network also for video streaming. Secondly, we give an innovative example how wireless broadband networks can be used for value added services in sport events or other occasions for opening new business opportunities.
