Czech GSM operator RadioMobil, which runs the Paegas network, has announced a huge investment into GPRS (General Packet Radio Service) technology.
Initial RadioMobil's investments will exceed 400 million Kc (US$12 million) and the final volume of investments is estimated to be up to 1 billion Kc (US$30 million).
"The Paegas network will be one of the world's first networks to offer GPRS-based services to its customers," said Klaus Tebbe, general director of RadioMobil.
Users of GSM phones rely on a network utilizing the GPRS "always on" technology.
Motorola was chosen by RadioMobil as the supplier of GPRS technology. Motorola and Cisco Systems are expected to invest more than US$ 1 billion into research and development in this arena during next four to five years.
