Ericsson selected by Gibtelecom to deploy its GPRS network in Gibraltar

This agreement enhances the good relationship which Gibtelecom enjoys with Ericsson, a relationship that goes back to 1995 when Gibtel first provided public mobile services using an Ericsson AXE-10 switch for its GSM 900 network.

"Gibtelecom has chosen Ericsson for their professionalism and proven track record in this complex field of wireless technologies," said Ernest Britto, chairman of Gibtelecom.

"This contract will maintain Gibtelecom's leading position at the forefront of technology and demonstrates the company's continuing commitment to investing in Gibraltar," said Chairman Britto. "GPRS will provide Internet connectivity to local GSM customers as well as to roamers in Gibraltar."

The service will open up a new era in telecommunications connectivity on "the Rock." Deployment is scheduled to begin immediately and the service is expected to be available to customers before the end of the year.
