T-Mobile drops plans for Flash-OFDM

5 Mar 2008

T-Mobile Austria has cancelled plans to deploy a Flash-OFDM network using its 450MHz licence. The German-owned firm had been considering rolling out Flash-OFDM infrastructure to enhance mobile broadband services in rural areas which are not currently covered by its HSDPA networks. A report from Cellular News says the operator has returned its licence to the Austrian regulator; it paid around USD1 million for the concession in 2006.
