Other successful cellular systems include the cdmaOne standard and the IS-136, or “TDMA” cellular standard. Both have been used for Access technologies 37 WLL, as discussed later, both in cellular frequency bands and other available bands. For example, IS-136 systems have been deployed in South America in the 400-MHz band as WLL solutions. Cellular systems have many disadvantages as an access technology, particularly low capacity and high cost. In developed countries, it can be expected that for some time they will continue to fulfill the role of providing mobility but will not present significant competition to the other access methods.

However, the same spectrum cannot be used in adjacent cells because interference would occur. The spectrum typically needs to be divided into clusters of 11 cells to avoid interference, that is, each cell has around 36 MHz of spectrum. Some cells cover millions of users, with the result that each subscriber has only a few tens of hertz. Thus, providing individual services for each subscriber, such as VoD, clearly is not going to be possible. Satellite is in a similar situation. It has more spectrum, around 1 GHz in total, and does not need to divide that spectrum among different cells in the same manner as terrestrial.
