NMT launches world’s first 450MHz Rev.A network

23 Oct 2007

The Cellular Development Group (CDG) has announced that Nordisk Mobiltelefon (NMT) has launched a commercial CDMA2000 1xEV-DO Revision A (Rev. A) network in Norway using the 450MHz band, making it the first of its type in the world. Within the next few weeks, NMT will also launch Rev. A in Sweden, continuing its competitive build-out of fixed wireless and advanced mobile broadband services in the urban and rural areas of Western Europe.

Rev. A has now been deployed across all of the existing CDMA frequency bands, 450MHz, 800MHz, 1700MHz, 1900MHz and 2100MHz. There are currently twelve Rev. A networks in commercial operation across the globe, with a further 32 in deployment, mostly in emerging markets. The CDG expects most CDMA operators to upgrade to Rev. A in the near future. Nordisk Mobiltelefon in Norway is one of 107 CDMA2000 operators in 60 countries that have or are planning to deploy CDMA2000 services in the 450MHz band.
