Monday 15 February 2010 | 12:47 CET | News
Iliad, the parent company of France's fourth 3G licence holder, Free Mobile, has selected Nokia Siemens Networks to supply its core network equipment, NSN CEO Rajeev Suri announced at the Mobile World Congress, Reuters reports. An NSN spokesman added that a preliminary agreement had been signed and that a definitive deal was expected soon. The contract value was not disclosed, but French newspapers put it at around EUR 250 million. The companies confirmed that they had entered exclusive negotiations. A person close to the matter told Reuters that the deal with NSN covered the network core equipment, traditionally the most expensive part of a rollout. Alcatel-Lucent is one of the companies being considered to supply equipment for another part of the network, a much smaller contract.
