P4 postpones launch

30 Aug 2006

Chris Bannister, CEO of wireless newcomer P4, has confirmed that his company has postponed commercial launch from 4Q 2006 to 1Q 2007. The delay is the result of problems in gaining planning permission for its base stations; so far the cellco has only been granted permission for the installation of 36 of its 1,500 planned masts. Because of the delay, MVNOs Cyfrowy Polsat and MNI will beat P4 to the market, with both aiming to launch services by the end of this year.
