Tuesday 19 June 2018 | 11:30 CET | News
Brazil's fifth largest mobile operator, Nextel, has just shut down its iDen wireless network and is targeting the C-class with affordable deals and quality 3G and 4G services. At a news conference, company president Roberto Rittes said that the idea is to offer simple plans with unlimited connections and internet service, although the speed drops once a threshold is reached. Prices should start at BRL 50, while the most expensive package will cost around BRL 100.
