"WiMAX is a standards-based wireless technology that provides 
high-throughput broadband connections over long distances. WiMAX can be 
used for a number of applications, including "last mile" broadband 
connections, hotspot and cellular backhaul, and high-speed enterprise 
connectivity for businesses.

An implementation of the IEEE 802.16 standard, WiMAX provides 
metropolitan area network connectivity at speeds of up to 75 Mb/sec. 
WiMAX systems can be used to transmit signal as far as 30 miles. 
However, on the average a WiMAX base-station installation will likely 
cover between three to five miles."

The games are played on their respective game consoles. You connect the 
consoles to the telematics/car-pc via 10/100 ethernet. The 
telematics/car-pc acts as a router between the game console and internet 
  via cdma/gprs, satellite and/or WiMax.
