E-Plus plots 2009 upgrades

15 Dec 2008

E-Plus plans to spend a ‘high three-figure million Euros’ amount in 2009 on upgrading its GSM network, after a similar level of expenditure in 2008, reports Dow Jones. The operator expects to deploy EDGE upgrades covering at least 30% of the population by the end of the first quarter of next year, increasing to 90% by December. EDGE will supplement the company’s existing W-CDMA network which currently covers approximately 65% of the population.
