STOCKHOLM -- Movistar Argentina, the mobile operator of Telefónica Móviles group in Argentina, has selected Ericsson as a sole supplier for its GSM and transmission networks expansion. This will allow the operator to offer its growing number of customers more advanced mobile services.

Ericsson will supply EDGE-ready GSM/GPRS 850MHz and 1900MHz radio access and core network to expand Movistar's nationwide GSM network.
