Nextel to launch mobile broadband this month

2 Dec 2009

Peruvian mobile telephony operator Nextel will launch mobile broadband services over an HSDPA network during December, reports BNamericas citing local newspaper Gestion. Nextel won spectrum in the 1900MHz band in 2007 and has spent much of this year trialling services, before launching two months ago. Nextel Peru president Miguel Rivera said that the operator will offer 3G services across its entire area of operations, with three new districts added during the first quarter of 2010. According to TeleGeography’s GlobalComms database, Nextel Peru had over 795,600 subscribers at the end of September, equivalent to a 4% share of the market.
