The UMTS Forum and 3G Americas have signed a ‘Letter of Understanding’ to promote mobile operators’ progression to 3G. The parties are coming together to ensure that TDMA and GSM networks progress to UMTS.
Both organisations will support the other with educational and promotional activities to increase the awareness of 3G services and the 3G market as a whole. They are also working to improve industry confidence in next generation mobile services.
The UMTS Forum is an independent body that encourages the uptake of 3G mobile systems and services throughout the world. 3G Americas is a new organisation working for the success of various 3G networks in the Americas.
