Ancel reduces tariffs and launches 3G

Wednesday 18 July 2007 | 11:10 CET | News
Uruguay-based mobile operator Ancel has reduced its tariffs coinciding with the launch of 3G services in the country. According to Ancel, the price cuts have nothing to do with the fact that CTI Movil, a local operator owned by Mexico's America Movil, cut its tariffs by 23 percent in a move to attract more subscribers. Ancel has already initiated the installation of radiobase stations for 3G services and has also started imports of compatible handsets. The company invested USD 20 million in the service and launch tests with the UMTS technology in 2005.
