Motorola is to expand Cellnet?s UK network in a $70 million deal.
The contract is part of Cellnet?s commitment to spend #250 million a year on improving its network supporting the GSM mobile standard, which currently serves 1.4 million UK subscribers. The work is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
The deal is for a range of GSM base transceiver stations to increase network capacity and expand coverage within the south and south east of England. Cellnet is also trialling GSM techology at 1800MHz, using a test licence in a non-commercial environment. Motorola has supplied Cellnet with 1800MHz handsets and dual band 900/1800MHz handsets for use in the trial.
