GSM Calls for More Coverage at 900MHz

gsma122_whiteborder.gifDeployment of networks in the lower spectrum band would potentially add 300 million new mobile broadband customers, says the Groupe Speciale Mobile (GMA) Association, a global trade organization for the mobile phone industry.

Tom Phillips, the chief government and regulatory affairs officer of the GSMA, calls 3G technology at 900MHz, “a cost-effective way to provide valuable broadband services to the many people untouched by the high-speed Internet revolution that has swept through the developed world.”

The conclusions are based on a study by Ovum, an analyst and consulting company.
