Nextel Chile gets PTT over 3G

9 Aug 2012

US-based operator Nextel Chile has launched push-to-talk (PTT) services over its 3G network, having previously offered the service over its iDEN-800 network in Chile and trialling 3G PTT in Peru, BNAmericas reports. Commenting on the launch, NII’s COO and CFO Gokul Hemmady said: ‘The push-to-talk offering in 3G is extremely important. It is our value proposition. We believe that we’re getting the traction we’ve gotten in Peru in the first two months.’ NII plans to roll out PTT in Mexico next month and in Brazil by the end of the year.
