Abstract—The development and rollout of WiMAX introduces several regulatory and policy issues. This paper highlights the WiMAX Regulation in South Korea, as a country that is already more mature and had become the first to implement Wireless Broadband Access (WBA) of its kind (WiBro) in the world, and Indonesia, as a country that is still in the process of formulating the reconcilable regulation. The paper begins with a brief overview of the technologies behind WiMAX and compared the market situation relative to broadband and 3G mobile networks. Next, the paper examines the potentially significant specific policy and regulatory issues for regulator in each country and competition climate between stockholders. Finally, this data was used to obtain recommendations to overcome the said problems. We found out that WiMAX may prove to be a disruptive technology for existing telecommunication and Internet sector, but careful policy effectuation can ensure that the disruption could create the maximum benefit possible in the society and market.
