3 rolls back 3G rollout

13 Oct 2003

Hutchison Whampoa-backed H3G (UK) has scaled back its rollout plans in the UK, revising down the number of base stations it leases with Crown Castle, the company responsible for its tower management agreements. The two had agreed terms for 4,000 base stations over four years, but as a result of slow sales this has been cut to a minimum guarantee figure of 1,350.
