Computer Business Review
Koninklijke PTT Telecom Nederland NV is extending its Greenpoint CT2 Telepoint cordless phone system, increasing the number of base stations to 5,000 from 2,000. It is also launching a combination CT2 hand-set and pager, dubbed the Greenhopper. The Greenpoint network currently covers Amsterdam, along with post office, department stores and railway stations throughout the country. It will now be extended to include filling stations and parking areas on main routes, through-routes and approach roads to towns with more than 12,500 inhabitants, as well as the centres of large cities. PTT Telecom claims this will mean that users in urban areas will never be more than five minutes away from a base station. The work is scheduled for completion by the end of the year. The new Greenhopper phones are a combination of the company's Kermit handset and a pager. When a customer is paged, the handset displays the number, which can be dialled automatically when the user reaches a base station. The handset costs $400 with subscription $15 a month.
