Neotel begins wireless planning

6 Feb 2007

South Africa’s second national operator (SNO) Neotel has awarded Motorola a contract which paves the way for its deployment of a wireless communications network. Motorola is providing radio frequency planning for Neotel in the run-up to its rollout of WiMAX and CDMA technology. The SNO is hoping to use wireless technologies to build a network which will allow it to compete on an even footing with the incumbent operator Telkom. The value of the deal was not disclosed.
