Nortel plans 3G trial

24 Aug 2005

Canada-based equipment supplier Nortel Networks has announced that it has struck a deal with a Brazilian cellco to roll out a trial 3G network in the country over the next six months. The company has not revealed which cellco it will be providing the technology for, although Brasilcel (Vivo) has recently announced plans to upgrade to 3G, and is the only operator in the country which has not said that it is too early to launch services.
