Mobile-8 to launch FWA access

Jakarta (Antara News) - A national telecommunication firm PT Mobile-8 Telecom will launch fixed wireless access (FWA) which uses code division multiple access (CDMA) technology late this week, a spokesperson said.

"In view of the government`s decision on national frequency bandwidth we are offering our cellular phone subscribers fixed wireless access," corporate affairs director Zen Smith said here Thursday.

Mobile-8 claimed it could serve a total of 30 million subscribers in 2007 using 1,900 base transceiver stations (BTS) across the country.

Smith said the company might increase number of BTS next year to improve its service.

Meanwhile, Mobile-8 Telecom marketing head Herman TKK said the corporate not only could give people such value added services as best voice and data but also EVDO REV A technology which provides people with high speed Internet service with up to 3.1 megabytes per second (mbps).

With the government`s decision to give FWA system to Mobile-8, the corporate is determined to offer people new innovative products.

First listed at Jakarta Stock Exchange last month, Mobile-8 has been preparing expansion programs in Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Lombok. (*)
