GOUDA, The Netherlands -- Imtech N.V. (technical service provider in Europe) recently entered into contracts with KPN Mobile, E-Plus and Vodafone, amongst others, for the turnkey rollout of UMTS networks in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. The total value of the contracts is approximately 30 million euro. Imtech Telecom secured the contracts. Partly in view of the investments announced by these and other telecoms providers, Imtech Telecom is expected to take on an increasing number of UMTS contracts in the period ahead.

Imtech was previously responsible for supplying a substantial part of the Dutch GSM/GPRS network for nearly all of the providers. Because of this expertise, Imtech has been involved since the start of UMTS in the technical realisation of the networks and facilities that will make UMTS possible. Various pilot sites were established two years ago, commissioned amongst others by Vodafone.

A number of telecoms providers are now actively preparing for the large-scale introduction of UMTS services into Western Europe. For instance, KPN recently announced that it will invest 1.4 billion euro in the rollout of UMTS networks in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium in the period through to the end of 2005. Vodafone has also announced substantial investments in Europe. UMTS allows the extremely rapid exchange of extensive information (data, images and speech) both by consumers and business users.
