Woosh expansion

15 Apr 2005

The New Zealand broadband operator Woosh Wireless has announced that it is expanding its UMTS TDD network and has placed an order with IPWireless for an additional 180 base stations. Woosh was the first operator to deploy a full-scale commercial UMTS TDD network when it began its rollout in 2003, and the company says it recently signed up its 10,000th customer. UMTS TDD, also known as TD-CDMA, offers a wireless broadband service which can compete with fixed alternatives such as DSL. The technology has been deployed in a number of countries, including Australia, Germany, Lithuania, Malaysia, New Zealand, Nigeria, Portugal, South Africa, Sweden, the UK and the US.
