CATEL to expand coverage

5 Apr 2007

Azerbaijan operator CATEL is to enlarge its CDMA network to cover the northern and southern regions by the end of the year, according to local news source Today.Az. CATEL launched its 800MHz CDMA2000 1x wireless-in-the-local loop (WiLL) network in 2003, and started offering mobile services over it in January 2006 following receipt of a cellular operating licence in December 2005. It presently provides coverage of Baku, Sumgait and the Apsheron peninsula, but the announced expansion will give it 80% geographical coverage of the country.
