If you are saying that it takes an order of magnitude fewer AP's with Wimax compared to WiFi to receive the same coverage, I would have to agree if you are comparing unlicensed Wifi to licensed Wimax using privately owned bands. However I would have to disagree if you are comparing Wifi to Wimax both playing by the same Part 15 rules. (same band, same max EIRP) The laws of Physics cannot be changed, but you know this already.
