Swedish telecomms solutions provider Ericsson said on Tuesday (15 November) that it had been selected by the Australian operator Telstra to provide a national 3G/WCDMA network, based on WCDMA 850 MHz. The network would connect all of Telstra's mobile customers to one national network, increasing coverage and the selection of services. Under a memorandum of understanding Ericsson had been appointed to deliver and deploy radio access equipment, core infrastructure and services. The national 3G network would offer all Australians equivalent access to higher-speed information and access to new services, Ericsson said.
