3G investment is on the cards, with 3 and T Mobile signing an agreement with network provider Nokia Siemens, with the goal of improving the reach of 3G mobile broadband services throughout the UK, within the limits of the network.
3 and T Mobile have been involved in the Mobile Broadband Network (MBNL), a joint venture to upgrade the network by the end of the year and this work is apparently still on course.
The deal between the two mobile providers and Nokia Siemens is worth around £400 million.
This covers mobile network planning, maintenance, optimisation and the introduction of a 3G radio network infrastructure.
The introduction of Nokia Siemens into the mix should not actually make any difference to the MBNL agreement.
