Intel Corp. appears to be pushing ahead with efforts to seed the WiMAX market in China, striking a deal with a provincial government in central China that may spread to several other provinces.

The city of Wuhan, in Hubei Province, said it will serve as a test bed for government services that run over a broadband wireless network, according to a statement on the city's Website. An Intel spokesman would not confirm the deal.

According to the city government, Intel will help set up the network while local wireless service provider Airway Communication will deploy WiMAX base stations using 802.16e.

Intel once tried running WiMAX trials in Chengdu and Dalian, but little has come of the effort. Last November, the Hubei government tapped Samsung Electronics to help provision a WiMAX service. Since then, Samsung has worked with Airway to make client side products, such as data cards and gateways.
