In this paper, we propose some simple capacity estimations for WiMAX/ IEEE 802.16 system. The OFDM Physical layer of 802.16 is considered. We compare between the nowclassical data rates values based on OFDM considerations and data rates obtained in simulation taking into account inter-cell interference. Figures are given for various scenarios of frequency reuse (1x1 and 1x3) and services (real-time and FTP) allowing interesting observations about WiMAX radio efficiency. These results can be
