Conecel to upgrade network

22 Mar 2005

América Móvil’s Ecuadorian subsidiary Conecel has contracted Finnish vendor Tecnomen to expand its voice services portfolio and provide for increased capacity over its TDMA and GSM networks. Tecnomen says that the expansion will significantly improve Conecel’s voice capacity and give the operator increased flexibility to design new promotions, discounts and packages. The contract is worth USD4.4 million. Conecel offers mobile services under the brandname Porta and currently control around two-thirds of the cellular market in Ecuador.
