EDGE makes its mark

31 Mar 2004

Despite earlier fears that EDGE technology would not be adopted widely by the world’s GSM community, a report from the Global Mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) reveals that 76 network operators in 50 countries have committed to deploying the platform to deliver high speed multimedia services. According to the GSA, the strongest support comes from Asia, Europe and Latin America, although the recent announcement by Scancom in Ghana to roll out EDGE marks the first instance of the technology being used in Africa.
