Watch out, you concrete cows. Milton Keynes is going to be the first city in the UK to get WiMaxed. Courtesy of the ISP Pipex and Intel , the south eastern town that is the home to the notorious concrete cows (put up to make it look less like a concrete wasteland) is going to be the first testing ground in the UK for WiMax, which could give wireless Internet access to the 22,000 inhabitants (and the cows) without having to tear up the streets to replace the existing low-quality aluminum cabling that the city installed in the 1980's, which can't handle Internet traffic.
