AT&T Mobility plans to replace Element Mobile’s CDMA network in Wisconsin with a new HSPA+ service carrying the AT&T brand, Fierce Wireless has reported. The mobile giant has reportedly reached an agreement with ‘the existing partners in Element Mobile’ to form a new company ‘that will be majority owned by AT&T that will sell services under the AT&T brand to customers in Central Wisconsin’. Meanwhile, according to documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the new company will be called Lake Mobility and AT&T will own 59.9% of it. The carrier noted that Lake Mobility will continue to operate its CDMA network for at least one year after the transaction closes, in order to complete the HSPA+ overbuild without a loss of service for subscribers.
