Nextel Brasil up for sale, could offer 4G - report

Monday 20 October 2014 | 09:14 CET | News
Nextel Brasil is facing financial difficulties and is up for sale, reports Folha de Sao Paulo. Nextel has denied that it is up for sale. The operator currently has 1 million customers using 3G telephony, less than 1 percent of the market. Another 2.9 million customers use the trunking service, where the operator has a 99 percent market share. However, Nextel could soon start offering 4G services if Anatel goes ahead with its proposal to allow companies offering trunking services to use their licence for 3G or 4G.
