Posted: 06-Jun-2003 [Source: Nokia]

[3 UK launches WCDMA network in Northern England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland completing deployment of its 3G service in the UK.]

3 UK has launched its WCDMA network in Northern England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, completing the deployment of its 3G commercial service in the UK. The network, supplied by Nokia under a 2001 agreement, is providing next-generation mobile data services to the northern half of the UK. Following 3's initial launch in the south, high-speed 3G data services, such as video calls, are now available across one of the world's premier telecom markets.

Nokia has been a full systems supplier and partner to 3 from the beginning. Nokia has provided a complete 3G system, including a nationwide core network and the radio-access network for the northern half of 3's network.

"This is an important landmark for 3G deployment, not only in the UK, but around the world," says Ian McCaig, Vice President, Nokia Networks. "Coverage of robust 3G service in an advanced market like the UK clearly demonstrates the maturity and viability of WCDMA.

Nokia looks forward to supporting Hutchison in extending and enhancing its 3G video and other advanced 3G services. We are delighted that Nokia's solution is making possible 3's world-leading portfolio of engaging and enriching content and services."
