WiMax is much greater than WiFi...

WiMax stands for Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, is a telecommunications technology that provides wireless transmission of data; using a variety of transmission modes from point-to-multipoint links to portable and fully mobile internet access. This technology provides up to 10 Mbit/s broadband speed without the need of cables (wireless technology). The technology is based on the IEEE 802.16 standard (also called Broadband Wireless Access). The name "WiMAX" was created by the WiMAX Forum, which was formed in June 2001 to promote conformity and interoperability of the standard. The forum describes WiMAX as "a standards-based technology enabling the delivery of last mile wireless broadband access as an alternative to cable and DSL".
