UK mobile phone operator One2One is to expand its GSM network after announcing today it had signed a $320 million dollar agreement with Ericsson. Under the agreement, Ericsson will deliver radio base station and base station controller equipment, and AXE solutions to support continued growth and provide additional capacity for One2One. According to a statement issued by both companies, this order -- along with recent ones for Ericsson's packet switching GPRS system (General Packet Radio Service) -- should ensure that One2One can meet future customer demand for its services. Ericsson has supplied GSM network infrastructure to One2One since 1991, leading to the launch of the world's first commercial GSM 1800 service, in September 1993. One2One, a joint venture partnership between Cable & Wireless and MediaOne International, currently has more than 2.25 million customers, an increase of 88 per cent on last year, the company claimed. ®
