12 Mar 2008

Orange Switzerland has announced that it is to begin tests of mobile telephony using the public W-LAN network in the city of Lucerne. The tests, conducted jointly with Swiss utilities firm Ewl Energie Wasser Luzern, are to last until the end of this month and are the first of their kind in Switzerland. The trial is primarily intended for the business market and aims to determine, among other things, compatibility of mobile systems with public W-LAN networks and signal quality. If the test results are successful, Orange Switzerland has said that it expects to launch a commercial offering in the second half of 2008.
