NetWorkS!, the joint venture between Orange Poland and T-Mobile Poland has announced that it has begun procuring equipment to roll out a dual carrier high speed packet access (DC-HSPA) mobile broadband platform in May 2012. The network management firm is currently running a tender for the apparatus and, after a recent visit to China, expects either Huawei or ZTE to win the contract.
As previously reported by CommsUpdate, NetWorkS! is the result of an infrastructure sharing deal between Poland’s largest and third largest wireless operators by subscribers. The firm was launched in July and began operations earlier this month.
