Verizon 3G plan upsets Vodafone as standards clash
Posted: 27-Mar-2001 [Source: Financial Times]

[Vodafone's global strategy gets cloudy as its U.S. partner, Verizon, announces plans to go CDMA2000 rather than UMTS.]

By Dan Roberts in London and Richard Waters in New York -- "A dispute over mobile phone standards has caused a rift between US operator Verizon and Vodafone, the world's biggest mobile operator. The two are at odds over using third-generation technology in the US that is incompatible with that in Europe.

"Verizon Wireless, a joint venture controlled by Verizon but 45 per cent owned by Vodafone, announced plans to build a 3G network using CDMA2000 rather than the UMTS standard employed by Vodafone's other overseas networks. This could make it impossible for business travellers to use the same phone on both sides of the Atlantic. Vodafone fears it would undermine its global strategy.
