Ericsson Brings 3G to T-Mobile in Slovakia
T-Mobile Slovensko, a mobile operator in Slovakia, has selected Ericsson as sole supplier of its 3G/WCDMA network. Ericsson's latest technology will allow T-Mobile to offer their Slovakian customers new, advanced multimedia 3G services.
Ericsson will deliver 3G radio and core network, upgrading T-Mobile's existing GSM network to 3G/WCDMA. Commercial launch is planned for the first half of 2006.
Robert Chvatal, Chief Executive Officer, T-Mobile Slovensko, says: "Our long-standing cooperation and Ericsson's focus on quality, customer service and advanced technology had already played their role when we chose Ericsson to build our EDGE network in Slovakia in 2004. We are happy to have also selected Ericsson as the technology partner for our 3G/WCDMA network."
Marian Bezak, President, Ericsson Slovakia, says he is very proud that T-Mobile Slovensko and Ericsson are bringing new opportunities to the Slovak communications market. "Our high-quality solutions will allow T-Mobile to introduce new, advanced multimedia services, such as video calls, mobile TV, mobile broadband services and many others," Bezak says.
Ericsson is the world's leading 3G supplier, with a 35 percent market share for the GSM family, including WCDMA.
