Flarion’s Finning Smile

  1. Hi Om,

    I live in the Czech Republic and I read in the paper yesterday that T-Mobile will be offering some kind of wireless “broadband”. As opposed to Eurotel, the biggest T-Mobile’s competitor, they won’t roll it out using CDMA, but I guess using the stuff made by Flairon. They should be offering it in a few cities during the summer holidays. I tried Eurotel’s CDMA and it quite sucks, with downstream speeds around 200Kb/s. I was an intern in Southern California and my apartment had a DSL, cheaper then what I pay here for GPRS and was like ten times faster. When you don’t live in a bigger town, chances of getting a decent broadband connection are slim. I am a software entrepreneur and can’t live without it, though :-).

  2. Digitoday has a fairly specific write-up on Digita’s plans for the buildout of the network including coverage maps for the first phase. In addition to the rural areas, coverage will be extended to the capital city region (Helsinki-Vantaa-Espoo) in the first phase. By september 2005 Digita will cover 204 municipalities with 164 base stations. By december 2007 95 more base stations will be added to the network and include 224 municipalities in all. The network rollout will be complete by 2009 with the last part of Lappland coming online.

    The coverage maps in the article are calculated with antennas at 5 meters and 1,5 meters. The article notes, that in the first phase almost all subscribers will have to place their antennas at 5 m, so I guess mobility is out of the question. Downlink speeds will be up to 1,3 Mbps. There is also a list of municipalities to be covered in the first two phases.

  3. I did not get the specific title for the post. However I read the whole post and found one most important point that Digita is going to build network in three stages. Wherever the network is to be placed is really good for that area. Hope there will be good coverage and network for all types of cell phones. Thanks for the nice article.
