Intel pump $20m into Korean WiBro after KT tweak its WiMAX compatibility

Rumors of Intel's waning interest in WiMAX look to have been unfounded, with the news that not only has the silicon company just invested $20m into Korea Telecom's WiBro service, but it's convinced the carrier to shift the WiMAX-based system onto the 10MHz channel.  That means compatibility with other WiMAX devices, opening up the potential for US WiMAX users to roam their devices onto the high-speed South Korean network.
