WiMAX Telecom Group, a multinational operator of WiMax services in Europe, set a new record transmitting live video at ranges of up to 40 kilometres (24.8 miles) of the World Sailing Championships in Austria -- and from moving vessels.

The experience gained will be applied to its network in the coastal region of Croatia. From a yacht moving at 12 knots, pictures of the World Sailing Championships were streamed live – and over a distance of 40 kilometres, thus beating all previous forecasts about the range of WiMAX technology.
