UMTS Delayed By Investigation

Posted on Thursday 1 April 2004

The largest field trial of a 3G network, to be conducted on the Isle of Man, has been postponed until an investigation into a mysterious event is complete. According to wire service reports, police investigators are looking into rumors that two elderly female neighbors, apparently using prototype handsets to "video chat" across their backyard fence, simultaneously and spontaneously combusted. Fire and rescue officials who arrived at the scene found the charred remains of the ladies only meters apart, separated by a low picket fence. "The fence looked like somebody’d torched it — on both sides," said one police inspector [emphasis added]. "The odd thing was that the fire seemed to start in each biddy’s hand, the poor dears."
