Versatel sells WiLL licence to Casema

19 May 2006

According to Telecompaper, the Dutch cable operator Casema has purchased a wireless in the local loop (WiLL) licence from Versatel, as part of plans to extend its national footprint. Versatel was threatened with financial penalties or even having its licence revoked for failing to meet the rollout and coverage requirements of the concession, but Casema reports that it has now fulfilled the licence conditions. The cableco plans to start rolling out internet access, telephony and video services and also hopes to test WiMAX with an eye on acquiring a mobile WiMAX licence in 2008.
