Telstra opts for Nortel’s EV-DO solution

22 Jul 2004

Telstra has awarded Nortel a contract for the roll out of cdma2000 1XEV-DO equipment to major capital cities and selected regional areas. The equipment will be an upgrade to the CDMA network supplied to Telstra by Nortel in 2000 and which was subsequently upgraded to cdma2000 1XRTT in 2002. The new EV-DO network will offer users speeds of 300kbps to 600kbps, equivalent to that of fixed line broadband.
