LMDS is a **DS family technology but it uses much higher frequencies - K-band, Ka-band (20 - 40 GHz). It offers much wider frequncy range, which means more TV channels. Also, due to relatively short wavelengths, the physical dimensions of the transmitting/receiving equipment are small. In addition 20 - 40 GHz frequency range usually is unloaded. But it has several disadvantages: expensive, because of the high cost of subscriber receiver; RF equipment is not so widespread and available as lower frequency one. But it useful or even irreplaceable in some situations.
