Unefon and Iusacell will invest USD20 million in August 2005 to upgrade their networks in Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey to CDMA2000 1xEV-DO technology. According to BNAmericas, the two cellcos will share each other’s networks in the markets to support the deployment of advanced services for business and residential users. The wider implementation of EV-DO will be dependent on take-up of the new service.
