MALTA -- go mobile, a wireless operator in Malta, is providing new broadband mobile services such as video, TV and gaming powered by EDGE technology from Nortel* [NYSE/TSX: NT].

“By upgrading our nationwide GPRS network with Nortel’s EDGE technology, go mobile becomes the first mobile operator in Malta to offer high bandwidth applications like streaming video on a mobile phone,” explains Martin Zammit, senior executive engineering at go mobile. “The upgrade of our network is part of go mobile’s high-speed broadband network evolution leading to the launch of 3G services next year. Our investment in EDGE technology ensures that go mobile delivers the fastest nationwide mobile network in Malta."

Nortel’s EDGE technology allows go mobile subscribers to access content on their mobile phones at speeds up to four times faster than previous network capabilities.

“Nortel's technology is helping go mobile bring a new era of wireless broadband services to Malta,” said Jean-Luc Jezouin, GSM and UMTS vice president for Nortel. "Our EDGE solution is designed to help operators increase network capacity, lower operational costs and offer the kind of innovative wireless broadband services that drive new sources of revenue."
