Nuevatel to complete suburban GSM coverage by end-2004

2 Jul 2003

Mobile operator Nuevatel plans to have completed GSM coverage in the suburban areas of La Paz, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz by the end of 2004. The cellco said it will begin focussing on mobile data applications in the future in a bid to boost revenues and is considering building out an EDGE network when handsets are made cheaper. However, it said that 3G is not currently an option.
