The roll-out of third-generation (3G) phone services in Europe has been dealt a further blow with the news that French operator Cegetel will not launch a commercial service before 2004.
A subsidiary of Vivendi Universal and France's second largest telecoms operator, Cegetel says it will not now begin trials until the middle of 2003, despite an investment of Eu400m in building its 3G network this year.
The move contrasts with Hutchison 3G in the UK, which was one of the five companies to be awarded licences by the government.
Hutchison has said that it will concentrate only on 3G and plans to launch services in September this year. The company has just signed a contract with BBC Technology for mobile content.
