Who needs WiMAX?

A bunch of geeks (see story on Wi-Fi Toys) succeeded in transporting an unamplified WiFi signal over a distance of 125 miles. Do we still need WiMAX, which not only boasts higher bit rates but most notably a longer range (some 50 km)?

By the way, the story also recounts the Bluetooth record of over 1 mile.
