Macau’s CTM to launch 3G

13 Jun 2007

Companhia de Telecomunicações de Macau (CTM) will launch 3G mobile services next week, its CEO, Philip Green, announced during a ceremony to inaugurate its W-CDMA network, supplied by Ericsson. CTM, majority-owned by the UK’s Cable & Wireless, has a monopoly on Macau’s fixed line market and competes in the GSM mobile sector with the local units of Hong Kong cellcos Hutchison Telephone and SmarTone. CTM and Hutchison were granted W-CDMA licences by the Macau government in October 2006, whilst China Unicom won a licence to provide services based on the alternative 3G standard CDMA2000 1xEV-DO.
