Nextel targets VeloCom

8 Sep 2006

Digital trunking provider Nextel Argentina has signed a preliminary deal to buy local broadband operator VeloCom, BNamericas reports. The deal has yet to be approved the regulator CNC. VeloCom, which launched commercial operations earlier this year in Cordoba, specialises in WiMAX technology. Nextel’s intentions are believed to be similar to those of Mexican giant Telmex, which last week signed a deal to buy another Argentine WiMAX specialist, Ertach.
