Italy May Become UMTS Battleground

Posted on Tuesday 25 May 2004

With Hutchison having launched UMTS services early last year, two other UMTS spectrum licensees have announced commercial services starting this week. Vodafone said it will make both voice and data services available starting today using a single Samsung handset model. Telecom Italia Mobile said yesterday that it has launched both its EDGE and UMTS networks. TIM claimed to have 450K pre-orders for new handsets, implying that they were all UMTS orders, but close analysis shows they are both EDGE and 3G devices and that the orders are from dealers, not end users.
