29 Jul 2008

The smallest of Venezuela’s three mobile network operators Digitel has announced that it rolled out a total of 80 new GSM base stations in the first six months of this year, with deployments in every state in the country. The cellco says it covers at least 85% of all communities nationwide, giving an overall population coverage of over 90%, and it is aiming to reach as near to 100% coverage as possible by the end of the year. TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database says that in full-year 2007, Digitel added a total of 260 new GSM/GPRS/EDGE base stations to reach new areas and improve the quality of voice and data transmission in existing coverage zones.
