If you live in NYC wimax is already deployed and has some limited availability to business customers.
Originally wimax was going to be the solution for ISPs to provide wireless access to all. Hardware manufactures have focused on cell providers as they have the big pockets, so don't expect anything but Spring Wimax in the near future. If the FCC opens up additional spectrum it will be more realistic for the smaller guys to deploy wimax solutions.
towerstream.com was big in NYC in testing wimax. I don't know if they are actively using it yet.
