First EV-DO network trials scheduled for 1Q06

20 Dec 2005

Ukrainian fixed wireless access (FWA) operator International Telecommunication Company (ITC) and Huawei Technologies are rolling out the country’s first CDMA2000 1xEV-DO network in Kiev and plan to launch trials of the service in the first quarter of 2006. A US-Ukrainian venture, ITC was founded in 1996. In July 2004 the telco selected Huawei as sole supplier of its 800MHz CDMA network in Kiev and the surrounding area; the Chinese vendor is overseeing the upgrade of the IS-95A infrastructure to EV-DO. ITC provides voice and data services as well as value added services, including pre-paid, wireless public telephones and SMS, to an estimated 20,000 users under the brand name CDMA Ukraine.
