Brazilian regional operator Sercomtel is planning to accelerate the switch-off of its GSM, GPRS and Edge networks, according to the director of engineering Flavio Borsato, reports Teletime. This follows the imposition of new terms for mobile operators to meet minimum levels of network quality by regulator Anatel. The aim is to turn off the GSM GRPS/Edge network by 31 December 2016. Sercomtel would thus end up with a single network, 3G.
