TusMobil quick off the mark with 3G

4 Jun 2008

The Slovenian wireless operator TusMobil is preparing to launch its 3G/3.5G network just a month after signing an equipment supply deal with Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN). ‘We are witnessing one of the fastest 3G rollouts in the history of mobile communications,’ said Marko Fujs, TusMobil CEO. ‘Our users will very soon enjoy incredible data speed in TusMobil network.’ NSN was contracted in late April to deploy 400 UMTS and HSPA base stations and expand the cellco’s core network with a new mobile switching solution. TusMobil launched Slovenia’s third mobile network in October last year and now competes with established operators Si.Mobil and Mobitel.
