Cellcos ink 3G network sharing deal

9 Feb 2011

The Czech mobile arms of Telefonica and T-Mobile have signed a 3G network sharing agreement covering areas not already served by UMTS. The move should bring mobile internet services to a number of new towns and cities when a pilot commercial operation is implemented in the second quarter of 2011. Under a six-year partnership pact, Telefonica O2 CR and T-Mobile CR will build up to 1,000 new base stations, with each operator committed to build at least 490. Trials are currently underway in the cities of Dobris and Humpolec, with O2 agreeing to cover areas in the eastern part of the country, and T-Mobile the west.
